So, what is biometrics? Biometrics or (biometric authentication) refers to the identification of humans by their characteristics or traits. Biometrics is used simultaneously with computer systems as a form of access control and identification. It’s also commonly used for the purpose surveillance, as well as access.
As an example, think about using a fingerprint on an entry pad to gain access to a building or area.
More specifically, biometric identifiers are the unique, measurable characteristics used to classify and describe individuals. Biometric identifiers are often classified in two categories, namely 1.) physiological and 2.) behavioral characteristics:
Advantages of Biometric Access Control
Biometric physical access control solutions
are stronger authentication methods than other means because they are unique. Fingerprints, as an example, are difficult, if not impossible, to replicate. Thus, unauthorized persons cannot easily access facilities or premises secured by a biometrics access control system
In addition, biometric systems provide more accountability. Biometric log-ins mean a person can be directly connected to a particular action or an event. In other words, biometrics creates a clear, definable audit trail of transactions or activities in a particular area or location.
