Biometrics is a unique approach to identity management that offers user convenience, increased security, cost-effective provisioning and a non-repudiated, compliant audit trail for the system operator.
Traditional credentials or specialized knowledge—tokens or passwords—cannot guarantee that the person using the system is the authorized individual. Knowing with certainty who is performing a transaction is an essential part of a complete authentication solution. Biometrics is the only mode of authentication that can unequivocally validate a person’s identity. Biometrics offers this certainty along with greater security and convenience — with no added complexity for the user.
