Biometric identity units provide security protection. Units are comprised of integrated biometric capture devices and readers, systems to store and use the biometric identifiers. Biometrics units are comprised of fingerprint systems, facial recognition, iris scans, and biometric signatures. They include data encoders. Data encoders may be implemented as a bar coder or document scanner. Units are sometimes contained in ruggedized briefcases for military, public safety, and civil identification applications.
Advances in technology, miniaturization, and improved mobile device technology enable uses previously thought impossible, or never even imagined. Voter registration in low-literacy economies is now economical. Identifying persons of interest in a crowd can be done with biometrics. Growth of biometric technologies has been in response to global security threats. Terrorist attacks, airport security initiatives, and attempts to lower crime rates have brought an increasing investment in biometric security systems.
Government projects include ePassports, eDriving licenses, border management, and national IDs. These initiatives have been implemented in developed countries. A rise in government projects has been seen as terrorists become an increasing threat. This has been accompanied by increasing data security concerns. There is a need for advanced security devices.
