Per Fennelly (2017), every human being is created differently with physical and behavioral traits that are unique; and everyone’s fingerprints, iris, facial feature and body types are entirely different from one another. The effective and efficient use of biometric technology will play a key role in automating a new method of identifying living person based on individual physiological and behavioral characteristics. Protecting sensitive information from vulnerable access by unauthorized users is paramount in our digital world and attempting to identify and mitigating such operation is becoming very challenging and troubling to the entire human society.
Biometric authentication-based identity is playing a vital role in security operations. Traditional authentication approach used to identity logon, logout, username, passwords are no longer enough to battle the identity and security crisis. Physical Biometric processes often allow the authentication of an individual personal data to be stored in a document format for future references. The comparison is often used to determine whether the biometric characteristics of individual match the previously information recorded in the document. Physical biometric systems have proven to be very effective in verification and identification processes.
Physical biometric identification and recognition processes are classified in three groupings including acquisition, feature extraction and comparison. Traditionally, biometric characteristics are acquired through measurements, such as a camera, microphone, fingerprint scanner, gathering of specific characteristics and creation of digital representation, photograph, a voice recording and scanned fingerprint. Most naturally significant areas supporting physical biometric process include corners of the eyes, mouth, nose, chin and likely to be identified by human inspection and through an automated biometric process.
Biometric Access Control is a security system used to provides conditional access after scanning for unique physical characteristics including installing Biometric Access at ATM’s and other public facilities to safeguard financial data. Indeed, when faces, fingers, irises and veins are scanned such data are converted into digital format and a complex algorithm is used to make a match. Such physical biometric processes appear to certify as foolproof with no chance of being misused and often confirm homeowners, financial institutions, public and private organization. Technology infiltrating has rearranged every facet of modern living and the global society has become progressively digitized, protective of confidential information, such as username and password. Prior to biometric operations, username and password were enough to provide adequate security to organization’s data security data. Today, in our modern age, username, password and keys are becoming increasingly feeble and appealing to sophisticated criminals.
“Create an Art Response to one of the readings from the term so far. The art piece can be poetry, short story, sculpture, painting, drawing, dance, monologue, performance piece, song, video game, or music that you create (but NOT collage). If you choose to write Haiku or short poetry, you need to write a series of at least 4 connected/related pieces. The art MUST be your own creative work. If you incorporate others’ words or images, you must reference them in the art itself as well as in the Artist Statement. Half of the grade.
Write an Artist Statement to turn in with your Art Response due with your art
