Biometric Sensors & Detectors

Biometric Sensors & Detectors A wide range of biometric sensors & detectors are available to consumers for security and access control management. Biometrics refers to methods for recognizing individual people based on unique physical and behavioral traits. Physiological biometrics are one class of biometrics that deals with physical characteristics and attributes that are unique to individuals. Biometric sensors/detectors are useful in several industries as well as to consumers for access control, identity access management and information technology applications.Biometric sensors work by producing electrical currents when they scan a user’s physical characteristic. Many physical characteristics may be scanned by a biometric …


Facial Recognition

Facial Recognition Some facial recognition software algorithms identify faces by extracting features from an image of a subject’s face. Other algorithms normalize a gallery of face images and then compress the face data, only saving the data in the image that can be used for facial recognition. A probe image is then compared with the face data. A fairly new method on the market is three-dimensional facial recognition.  This method uses 3-D sensors to capture information about the shape of a face.  This information is then used to identify distinctive features on the face, such as the contour of eye sockets, nose …


Fingerprint Readers

 Biometrics Fingerprint Readers for ID and Access Control Take Me To FINGERPRINT READERS Right Now! Fingerprint readers take impressions of the friction ridges of the skin on the underside of the tip of the fingers.  Fingerprints are used to identify you and are unique and different to everyone and do not change over time.  Even identical twins who share their DNA do not have the same fingerprints.  Police and Government agencies have used these modes of identifying humans for many years but other agencies are starting to use biometric fingerprint readers for identification in many different applications. Fingerprints are formed when the friction ridges …


Hand Readers & Finger Scanners

Biometrics Hand/Palm Scanners and Finger Readers Take Me To HAND READERS Right Now! A person’s hand/palm and finger are unique however not as unique as their fingerprints or irises, for this reason, businesses and schools like to use hand scanner and finger reader biometrics technology, to authenticate but not identify its users. Authentication is a one-to-one comparison; it compares your characteristic with your stored information. Identification, on the other hand, is a one-to-many comparison. In this way, some people may find it less intrusive. Hand scanner and finger reader recognition systems measure and analyze the overall structure, shape and proportions of the hand, e.g. …


Iris Scanners & Recognition

Iris Scanners & Recognition  Take Me To IRIS RECOGNITION SCANNERS Right Now! Iris cameras perform recognition detection of a person’s identity by mathematical analysis of the random patterns that are visible within the iris of an eye from some distance.  It combines computer vision, pattern recognition, statistical inference and optics. Of all the biometric devices and scanners available today, it is generally conceded that iris recognition is the most accurate.  The automated method of iris recognition is relatively young, existing in patent since only 1994. The iris is the coloured ring around the pupil of every human being and like a snowflake, no two are alike.  Each …


Middleware/Software

Biometrics Middleware / Software Take Me To BIOMETRICS SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS Right Now! Middleware / Software for  biometrics applications provides a set of services and instructions for multiple processes to run effectively across a network. Middleware / software allows for biometric devices and the computers and networks they are connected to, to be interoperable and compatible with each other. It allows different application software on different operating systems to be compatible and allows for an effective and working connection. Having the proper Middleware or software for biometric security devices is essential for the effective functioning of biometric devices as well as a working …


Multimodal Biometrics

Multimodal Biometrics Take Me To MULTIMODAL BIOMETRICS SUPPLIERS Right Now! Multimodal Biometrics are systems that are capable of using more than one physiological or behavioral characteristic for enrollment, verification or identification.  For biometric identification to be ultra-secure and provide above average accuracy, more than one type must be used as only one form of it may not be accurate enough.  One example of this inaccuracy is in the area of fingerprints where at least 10% of people have worn, cut or unrecognizable prints. Some forms of behavioral biometric identification include the following: Keystroke or Typing Recognition Speaker identification or Recognition …


Signature/Keystroke

Digital Signature / Keystroke Biometrics Take Me To SIGNATURE RECOGNITION DEVICES Right Now! A digital biometrics signature is equivalent to a traditional handwritten signature in many respects since if the signature is properly implemented is more difficult to forge then the traditional type. Digital signature schemes are cryptographically based and must be implemented properly to be effective.  Digital signatures can be used for electronic mail, contracts, or any message sent via some other cryptographic protocol. Although messages include information about the person sending the message, that information may or may not be accurate.  A digital signature may be used to authenticate the source of the …


Smart Cards

Biometrics Smart Cards Take Me To SMART CARD SOLUTIONS Right Now! A smart card is a pocket sized plastic card with an embedded chip that can process data, used   in industries such as health care, banking, government and biometrics.  Smart cards can process data via input and output of information.  A smart card is essentially a mini processor. Smart cards provide identification, authentication, data storage, access to buildings, bank machines, communications & entertainment. The first smart card technology was used in 1983 in pay phones in France.  The international payment brands Visa, MasterCard & Euro pay agreed in 1993 to work together …


Vein Recognition

Vein Recognition Biometrics Take Me To VEIN RECOGNITION DEVICES Right Now! Biometrics, such as with vein recognition, refers to methods for recognizing individual people based on unique physical and behavioral traits. Physiological biometrics is one class of biometrics that deals with physical characteristics and attributes that are unique to individuals. Vein recognition is a type of biometrics that can be used to identify individuals based on the vein patterns in the human finger. Vein recognition is a fairly recent technological advance in the field of biometrics. It is used in hospitals, law enforcement, military facilities and other applications that require very high …


Voice/Speech Recognition

Voice/Speech Recognition Take Me To VOICE RECOGNITION DEVICES Right Now! A Voice Recognition voiceprint is a spectrogram.  A spectrogram is a graph that shows a sound’s frequency on the vertical axis and time on the horizontal axis. Different speech creates different shapes on the graph. Spectrograms also use colour or shades of grey to represent the acoustical qualities of sound. All of our voices are uniquely different (including twins) and cannot be exactly duplicated. Speech is made up of two components.  A physiological component (the voice tract) and a behavioural component (the accent) Some companies use voice recognition so that …
