Fundamentals of Biometrics


Exploration of the application of biometrics when implementing security systems. Applications may encompass many areas from monitoring and identification to access control of physical or information assets. Emphasis on investigating various biometrics and the devices currently employed to utilize biometrics as a means of identification. Also included are evaluations of the advantages and disadvantages of using various biometric techniques including cost, accuracy, reliability and ability to fool the device and the relative benefits of biometrics compared to other competing methodologies. 3 Credits (3 Lecture) Prerequisite(s): CIT230 and CIT236.
