Here's a cutting-edge book that delivers practical details on the latest biometric technologies, systems, and applications. Professionals gain the knowledge they need to effectively evaluate new biometric technologies, create policies that strengthen the overall security of their system, and fully understand the different usability issues associated with biometric systems. This unique resource enables practitioners to make informed decisions about integrating biometric technologies into diverse applications and creating stand alone systems which fulfill specific operational requirements. Readers find in-depth discussions on a wide range of critical optics, from the advantages and disadvantages of different commercially available biometric technologies, performance evaluation metrics, and writing biometric system performance analysis reports, to biometric standards, user interaction with biometric systems, and applied biometrics research.
