Biometric Solutions
Biometric solutions can be classified into two groups, based on the their biometric factor type
Based on a physiological factor, examples are fingerprint recognition and iris recognition
Based on a behavioral factor, examples are voice pattern recognition and keystroke dynamics
There are many factors which can in theory be used as a biometric solution to be applied for authentication or identification. For such a factor to be suitable, it must meet the following criteria:

  • Universality - The biometric factor must be something everyone possesses.
  • Exclusivity - The factor should be able to separate one individual from another. The process must be possible and not overly expensive.
  • Perpetuity - How well the biometric factor resists the effect of time.
  • Collectability - It should be possible and not overly expensive or time consuming to measure the factor.
  • Adequacy - Biometrics is not always very well accepted. This is generally dependent on people's view is on how invasive a certain technique is.
  • Evasion - How easily the biometric factor can be imitated.
  • Performance - The speed, the accuracy and the robustness

  • Fingerprint recognition
  • Eye recognition
  • Face recognition
  • Voice recognition

Biometric Applications
Biometrics can be applied for authentication - verifying that a person is who he claims to be - and for identification - determining who the person is based on the measured biometric factor. Any application requiring authentication or identification can make use of biometrics. Few examples are:

  • Time attendance systems
  • Access control to computer systems or portable media
  • Physical access control
  • Loyalty card or other customer systems
The main reasons to go for biometrics are to increase security while decreasing the burden of keeping keys, remembering passwords, etc.

CCTV Cameras
Closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras produce images or recordings for surveillance purposes and can be either video cameras or digital stills cameras.

Types of CCTV Cameras
  • Analogue
  • Digital Video Cameras
  • Network/IP
  • Digital Still Cameras
