As an active biometric device, the Identix fingerprint scanner will fare better with privacy advocates than various passive biometrics devices designed for clandestine authentication purposes. Passive biometrics work without the owner's knowing participation or permission, for example stealth iris scans. With an active biometric, such as fingerprint, a user must elect to participate in the authentication or identification process, e.g. offer their finger for scanning. Product Challenges With

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) criteria cover tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line.

Biometrics for Global Web Authentication: An Open Source Java/J2EE-Based Approach


Recently, companies have been working on integrating biometric verification capabilities using open source single-sign-on techniques. The main idea behind this integration is to take advantage of the infrastructure provided by a Central Authentication Service (CAS) to offer single-sign-on Web authentication, while improving security beyond basic mechanisms based on login and password.
