About this book

Containing a wealth of real world advice and written from an operational perspective, "Practical Biometrics" examines the many issues raised by the application of biometric technologies to practical situations, with specific regard to wide scale public applications. It acts as a practical guide to implementation, identifying the associated issues around:

* Scalability in applications featuring biometric verification techniques

* Interoperability, both from a technical and operational perspective

* Ethnicity and the associated implications for biometric verification checks

* Failure to enroll and other error conditions

* User psychology – the less obvious, but vitally important aspects of operational performance.

"Practical Biometrics" provides an invaluable resource to program managers, application developers, consultants, and other interested in this technology.

Reviews

"Practical Biometrics" is "practical" in the truest sense of the word. Julian Ashbourn has a thorough understanding of biometric technology and the issues organizations need to address when they set out to deploy biometric-based security. He does an excellent job of communicating that knowledge and describing how BANTAM and Pentaksi, systems he developed, can be used to enhance the success of biometric implementations.", Judith Markowitz, President, J.
