I need an explanation for this Writing question to help me study.
Need help with this homework
1. Find a technology
Research online sources to find an authoritative (see above) description of a specific
technology for access control of a specific type according to the following:
"Password alternative" refers to some technology that is an alternative to typing a textual password or passphrase. Your technology must not involve typing characters on a keyboard, keypad, or similar device.
"Hardware token" refers to some physical device that is used in place of (or in addition to) typing a password. The RSA SecurID token (or any direct derivative of that device) shown in Lecture 7 is explicitly excluded for this assignment.
"Biometrics" refers to a specific technology for measuring some physiological and/or behavioral characteristic used in place of (or in addition to) typing a password.
You must find a specific technology that has been implemented, not just a generic description of a type or category of technology. For this answer a manufacturer's Web site is considered authoritative (but a seller's Web site is not!).
Show the URL of the page that describes the technology you selected and the date and time when you accessed it, as in this fictitious example:
First letter of first name
My selected technology is described at http://www.blahblahblah.com/tec h.pdf.
I accessed this page on March 31, 2016 at 11:59 p.m.
2. Summarize the technology
In your own words summarize the operation of the technology you chose using 100-150 words. Focus on how it works, especially how it can distinguish a particular person from any other.
Note: You must use your own words. Do not quote directly from the policy and do not change just a few words – re-phrase the lower-level requirement entirely. Failure to comply with this directive will result in a score of zero
If you use less than 100 words you will receive zero for this answer. If you use more than 150 words your answer may receive only
