A biometric is a verification method through which one can identify a person’s identity using information such as biological traits. Biometric identification methods include scanning fingerprint, hand geometry, iris, retina pattern, face recognition, DNA and voice waves.
In 2017, biometric technology has been adopted by many industries and there is an increase in the availability of biometric services across various consumers.
Simply speaking, trends in biometric security means how the biometric system affects different markets and what biometric devices and technologies will dominate the coming months? All the trends we will discuss indicate how biometric technology is evolving to make the process of authentication easier and more secure.
More and more industries (both private and government) are looking towards mobile biometric for easier and faster access towards the user identification. Mobile biometrics is a technology which means achieving individual user identification on the mobile device. Biometric identification on the mobile device is achieved with the help of built-in biometric sensors or by connecting portable biometric hardware to it via a USB cable or through a Wi-Fi connection. This trend is increasing rapidly due to the fact that biometric human identification can’t always be carried out in a controlled office environment.
Sometimes, biometric identification might be required to go where people venture out, such as public venues. Under such circumstances, mobile biometrics can be effective and speed up the identification process.
The next trend that we will discuss is multimodal biometric authentication system. In such a system, we take input from users on single or multiple biometric devices and process the identification scheme to ensure authentication accuracy with greater efficiency. We use multimodal system instead of uni-modal system as a uni-modal system isn’t as effective and is no longer an efficient option for many organizations.
Nowadays, this trend is the easiest and a swift option for biometric authentication. Cloud means storing the data on a remote server which can be accessed through the internet. By not storing the data on local server, we speed up the identification process. This trend comes turns out to be cost efficient for many government agencies and private sectors as they do not require any physical server for storing the data. Instead, they send the data straight to the cloud server which is a secure option.
The vertical biometric technology is becoming a very useful and popular choice for many organizations. The main purpose of this trend is to provide security and reduce waste and provides the consumer and the employee a complete audit trail. The application areas of vertical specialized biometric solutions are financial analysis, healthcare, decision support and predictive analysis.
This biometric technology focuses on replacing the password system in the biometric identification system. Many organizations are adopting this trend in order to secure their system in more efficient manner and to minimize the cost required for password management.
