"Biometric Technologies and Verification Systems" by John R. Vacca

"Biometric Technologies and Verification Systems" by John R. Vacca
Еlsеviеr | 2007 | ISBN: 0750679670 9780750679671 9780080488394 | 655 pages | PDF | 3 MB

This book will serve to identify the various security applications biometrics can play a highly secure and specific role in. It discusses the current state-of-the-art in biometric verification/authentication, identification and system design principles.
Only biometrics verification/authentication is based on the identification of an intrinsic part of a human being. Tokens, such as smart cards, magnetic stripe cards, and physical keys can be lost, stolen, or duplicated. Passwords can be forgotten, shared, or unintentionally observed by a third party. Forgotten passwords and lost "smart cards" are a nuisance for users and an expensive time-waster for system administrators. Biometric security solutions offer some unique advantages for identifying and verifying/ authenticating human beings over more traditional security methods.

• Contains elements such as Sidebars, Tips, Notes and URL links
• Heavily illustrated with over 150 illustrations, screen captures, and photographs
• Details the various biometric technologies and how they work while providing a discussion of the economics, privacy issues and challenges of implementing biometric security solutions

Biometric Technologies and Verification Systems is organized into nine parts composed of 30 chapters, including an extensive glossary of biometric terms and acronyms. It also provides a step-by-step discussion of how biometrics works; how biometric data in human beings can be collected and analyzed in a number of ways; how biometrics are currently being used as a method of personal identification in which people are recognized by their own unique corporal or behavioral characteristics; and how to create detailed menus for designing a biometric verification system.
