Biometrics and Consumer Electronics: A Brave New World or the Road to Dystopia?[Soapbox]
Biometric systems confirm a person's identity by extracting and comparing patterns in their physical characteristics against computer records of those patterns. Examples include scans of the face, iris, or retina; measurements ...
Biometric technology and smartphones: a consideration of the practicalities of a broad adoption of biometrics and the likely impacts
The Widespread Global Adoption of Smartphones across all demographics and the rapid commoditization of the technology to the point at which an entry-level device can be sold profitably for less than US$100 suggest that we ...
Biometric access control for digital media streams in home networks
Methods for controlling access to digital media content in the home environment using biometric sensing techniques are described. A wireless rebroadcast system for IP-TV content was retrofitted with a combination of ...
Smartphones, biometrics, and a brave new world
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016-09-09)
In this article, we take a somewhat contrarian viewpoint - that biometrics may, in fact, offer solutions to many of today's cyber-security problems that appear with increasing frequency in prime-time news. This outcome ...
Unconstrained palmprint as a smartphone biometric
In this work the use of palmprints as an alternative biometric for smartphones is investigated and its feasibility is evaluated across multiple devices using unconstrained acquisition. A novel multi-device database that ...
Determining Unique Fingerprint Features for Biometric Encoding of Data
A novel approach to determining unique fingerprint features with high repeatibility is described. The techniques described are particularly suitable for CE applications and devices employing inexpensive capacitative ...
