Bryan Tucker Discussing the biometrics and all of the great possibilities is great but o they actually work when needed and what are some proven methods that do work? The first obvious answer is the one that everyone talks about and that is the fingerprint scanner. This can be used to control access into a building by simply granting or denying access to people who scan their fingers. This is the most often used because it is inexpensive and that vast majority of people do not have a problem scanning their fingers as it seems less invasive. You can install one at every entry point of the building and instantly boost security and with a price range between $326-2,600 you can get the right one for your business. This is a proven method because a quick google search can direct into the waiting arms of several companies trying to sell their security methods to you, they would not be making millions if their methods were crap Another proven method is the iris scanner at points of entry to your high rise building and these can be even more secure than fingerprint scanner. Their price range is even less expensive than finger print scanner but there is one significant downside to iris scanners and that is most people are apprehensive to use it because they feel it is more invasive. There are several other proven methods such as hang geometry readers and voice recognition but the limits all depend upon what you can think of and what you need to secure. Gabriel Thompson The best for of security is the ones that fit the company the best. There cannot be a blanket statement on this due to the different needs. I personally would say that facial recognition would be the best fit for most companies. It is hard to fake, easy to set up, noninvasive, and many times the user doesn’t even know they are being scanned. If that was not an option I would do fingerprint scanning because it is just as effective and not invasive. The only downside to this method is that the scanners today often need you to be just perfect before it will accept a scan. This can be very frustrating. For higher level security and for people who don’t care about being scanned, iris and retina scan. These are impossible to change in a person and it doesn’t change all their life. The process to scan is a little more invasive for the user but it is the most secure in my mind. After those, I would use voice or signature authentication due to its simplicity and easy use. Ryan Piol The US-VISIT (Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator) biometric identification and analysis services have been the bedrock of Department of Homeland Security biometric solutions since 2009. The Department of States (States), U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S CoastGuard, Department of Defense and Intelligence Community (DoD), and the Department of Justice and State and Local Law Enforcement have all adopted biometric solutions for access control solutions (US-Visit, 2008). The CBP, in particular, has recently lead the charge in implementing biometric solutions for access controls for both border and air travel applications. CBP officers follow a strict federally mandated policy that requires all US-Visit applicants to provide "two digital fingerprints and a photograph from all non-U.S citizens between the ages of fourteen and seventy-nine, with some exceptions" (US-Visit). Non-U.S citizens applying for a visa and those who have arrived at U.S ports of entry must meet biometric requirements. A success story found on the DHS website tells of a man that applied for asylum at a U.S asylum office. The man provided his biometric data for DHS authentication when the process was complete the results revealed the man identifies as three different aliases with the various dates of birth. Also, his criminal history includes rape, assault, and an outstanding warrant for his immediate arrest. The asylum office contacted ICE who later arrived and formally arrested the man (US-Visit, 2008). Ryan US-Visit. (2008). Enhancing Security Through Biometric Identification.

Final Answer


Bryan Tucker
Biometrics are not completely secure for different corporations that use them. This is because
they do not offer a hundred percent guarantee of safety. Some malicious people can easily
manipulate them to breach the systems used by different corporations. Hacking is among the
most adverse effect that these tools are prone to. Take the example of fingerprints where one
can place a thin piece of clear paper on the surface being used and get the fi...
