The pros of implementing a biometric access control system include
1. the uniqueness - With uniqueness of biometrics technology, each individual's
identification will be single most effective identification for that
2.the highly secure way of identifying users makes this technology less
prone for users to share access to highly sensitive data. For example,
users can share
their fingerprints, iris and so forth allowing other users access to
secure information. Each trait used during identification is a single
property of that user. In other words,
it is extremely hard or impossible to make duplicate or share
biometrics accessing data with other users
3. The identification of users though biometrics cannot be lost, stolen or forgotten
1. the cost for equipment is also expensive
people are still concerned about biometrics technology in different
aspects such as: security, adaptability to rate of change in life, scalability, accuracy, privacy and others.
3. For iris or retinal scanning applications, users may find it very
intrusive. Users may also have the concern for the safety of their eyes
during the iris or retinal scan.
Furthermore, databases used to store user identification data will be
very large which might form a potential threat. For scanning
retinal/iris characteristics and storing large
amount of database, biometrics system requires new and modern
