What and what are #Biometrics for?


Biometrics: from Greek bio life and meter measure

Technology has taken such importance in our daily lives that it is already common to unlock your cell phone with your fingerprint, open doors that recognize the #facialfeatures of authorized people, or that the bank passes a process of reviewing your official identification for the #securityofyourdata.

The #biometric data of individuals increasingly serves to #authenticate and identify people, and through this validation process, the levels of security and agility in the processes have been increased. Biometric data by the characteristics recorded by each individual can be classified into two categories:

• By physiological and physical characteristics.

• By personality characteristics and behavior.

By physiological and physical characteristics.

Here are grouped biometrics that are based on physical/physiological characteristics of an individual, which are unique and cannot be copied.

Among the main biometrics of this category are:

• Fingerprint Biometric: Recognizes an individual's #fingerprint. There are one or more fingerprints to match at the same time.

• Iris Biometric: Recognizes the #iris of an individual's eye, which is unique and does not change over time.

• Biometric facial recognition: Recognizes age, gender and mood. Comparison between real #face vs. photography or video.

For personality characteristics and behavior.

This category groups biometrics that are based on behavioral characteristics of the individual.

Among the main biometrics of this category are:

• Biometric Voice: Measures speed, diction, emphasis, decibels, treble and bass.

• Signature Biometric: Measures validation are: speed, pressure, acceleration and congruence.

• Biometric Identification: Determines whether an ID is authentic or apocryphal.

For companies responsible for handling the information of their customers and/or employees, having the use of biometric technology is a great support and even more so is the having #technologicalsolutions, which compare more than one biometric to validate and protect the administration of information.

Biometric data are universal, since all people own them; they are permanent, since they are not modified over time; and are unique, since they cannot be equal among people.
