Background and Context
Biometrics refers to the automatic
identification or identity verification of living
persons using their enduring physical or
behavioral characteristics.
A single biometric, taken from a subjects
fingerprint or iris scan can obtain information
such as name, address, social security
number, telephone number, e-mail address,
booking and/or border crossing photos,
gender, race, date of birth, immigration
status, length of time in the United States, and
unique identifying numbers (drivers license
number)

Background and Context
A study of people’s attitudes
to the use of biometric
identification for travel has
revealed that 89% of citizens
are willing to provide details
such as fingerprints. So it
seems the sacrifice of a little
privacy and anonymity is
worth a bit more convenience.

What’s the problem?
How will the data be
protected and/or used?

Possible Solutions
Detailed and understandable security plan must be
implemented
Define uses and ensure public knowledge
Information should not be easily transferable
Information should be encrypted
Access control
Key management
Database cross-matching should reveal little information

Optimal Solution
Encryption
The encryption system
translates a fingerprint or
iris image file into code
using a mathematical tool
called a hash function—an
algorithm that generates a
small but unique set of
numbers from a larger data
file.

Benefits of the
Encryption
Encryption of biometric data will ease the minds
of the public
Encryption adds an additional measure of
security to the system...
