Biometrics is a rapidly evolving technology which is being widely used in forensics such as criminal identification and prison security, and has the potential to be used in a large range of civilian application areas. Biometrics can be used to prevent unauthorized access to ATMs, cellular phones, smart cards, desktop PCs, workstations, and computer networks. It can be used during transactions conducted via telephone and internet (electronic commerce and electronic banking). In automobiles, biometrics can replace keys with key-less entry devices. Although many technologies fit in the biometric space, each works a bit differently. Relatively new on the biometric scene, face recognition devices use PC-attached cameras to record facial geometry. Once the biometric data is collected, it is encrypted and stored--locally, in the case of the desktop-only products in a central database for the network solutions. When a user tries to log on, the software compares the incoming biometric data against the stored data.
