The most important is that the methods currently used really identify the number, card or password, not the person. In this case, the authentication is not specifically related to the person it is only related to the device. A real biometric identification well matched to the specific situation almost completely replaces the need to remember the password. However, it is worth noting that biometric identification methods can be used both separately and in conjunction with existing solutions passwords or PINs. The use of biometric user verification solutions come perfect now.
Information processed and transmitted in these systems is completely inaccessible to bystanders. By retaining only the mathematical record of the characteristics in the repository, it is not possible to reproduce the given biometric feature. For example, contrary to popular myths, fingerprints do not have to be stored in systems that store fingerprints. The so-called specific points present in these prints. Having access to such a database, of course, it is possible to determine where these points lie, but it is impossible to build a graphic fingerprint drawing identical to the lines of a given person.
Biometric systems are also convenient
But without the cost of reduced security system users do not have to carry any special cards with them, remember complicated passwords, etc. Moreover, these techniques are suitable for securing both closely guarded resources and individual PCs.
Biometric techniques are currently one of the most dynamically developing ICT departments.
The growing amount of processed information means that ensuring the highest quality of access control becomes an important problem. We are talking here about both access control to rooms and logical control of users using specific data or programs. Traditional techniques based on magnetic, processor or password cards have too many disadvantages to meet modern requirements. First of all, you can simply steal or forget a magnetic or microprocessor card, you can preview the password or just come up with it the vast majority of users use trivial passwords, such as name, date of birth or car registration number.
These problems do not occur with biometric control.
The biometric reader bases its operation on the specific characteristics of the body (or its behavior), individual for each person. It is worth emphasizing that also from a cost point of view, card-based systems are not the most advantageous: after all, in addition to the reader, you also have to buy, often a considerable number of cards. Furthermore, magnetic cards need to be replaced periodically! Thanks to the creation of solutions in which verification is carried out by a computer, the reader no longer needs to be so unloaded with electronics.
At present, the most popular biometric techniques include:
- Systems based on fingerprints
- Systems based on hand geometry
- Systems based on the arrangement of blood vessels
- Systems based on speech dynamics
- Systems based on the iris pattern of the eye
We recommend biometric security systems available in our offer, including fingerprint reader, hand geometry reader, face geometry reader, iris reader or blood vessel reader.
Advantages of the technology:
This technology allows you to confirm that the person who is authorizing is authorized, and not just came into possession of the password or identifier card, token. There are very high levels of security. No need to remember passwords, change them, carry identification cards, keys, etc.
