Biometric Standards

Chapter

Abstract

The preceding chapters have identified the requirement for a more sophisticated method of authentication utilising a variety of authentication techniques rather than relying upon one. The advantages of doing so result in improvements in usability, acceptability and security; however, for such an approach to be feasible in practice, authentication techniques must operate in a truly interoperable fashion, where techniques have effectively ‘plug “n” play’ functionality.
