There's no question biometrics can make our lives easier. A touch of a fingertip to our laptop, office door or security panel can eliminate bothersome keys, PINs, passwords and cards.
Users can gain reliable access to their computers or places of work by using something they can't leave home without-their finger- now that fingerprint biometric organizations offer solutions that deal with real-world conditions like dirty skin, aging, scars and cuts.
But are those solutions really providing additional security, and how easy are they to crack?
Biometric technology holds the promise for widespread, reliable, convenient security in countless thousands of different real-life applications. With the right configuration and the right flexibility, people everywhere will find that these solutions just plain work.
