Editorial Reviews

Review

“…particularly relevant…questions are raised and useful answers given…the material is extensive…substantial and well-researched material…” (Computer Bulletin, May 2003)

From the Back Cover

An in-depth look at biometrics, focused on critical issues such as accuracy, privacy, technology capabilities, and cost-effective deployment

No longer a science fiction solution, biometric technologies are being deployed by thousands of companies and public agencies to increase security, protect personal information, and reduce fraud. Along with this broad-scale deployment comes a wide range of critical issues, including privacy risks, secure biometric system design, and the strengths and weaknesses of leading technologies such as finger-scan, iris-scan, facial-scan, voice-scan, and signature-scan. A full understanding of the biometric technologies, applications, and markets is required for successful utilization of biometrics in today's enterprise environment.

Written by leading industry authorities, this book provides you with everything you need to know about the technology, the industry, the applications, and the challenges that define biometrics today. It explains why institutions are turning to biometrics to authenticate employees, customers, and citizens in mission-critical applications. It also provides a broad conceptual understanding of the technology, explains specialized terms and concepts, and concludes with an analysis of the factors you must consider when designing, deploying, and maintaining biometric systems.

Reviewing large-scale project examples, the authors:
* Discuss the metrics used to determine how well biometric systems operate
* Define how biometric deployments can be privacy-enhancing or privacy-invasive
* Dispel various myths and misunderstandings surrounding biometric technology
* Address topics such as system com-ponents, data acquisition, template generation and matching, and typical deployments for each biometric technology

As a security professional, I encounter biometrics more and more in work. Increasingly, understanding biometrics is a must for anyone dealing with security. If you need a quick lesson in the basics, this is a great book to start with. A great overview focused on privacy, security, accuracy, system design, and user perceptions, this book also provides a sound evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of leading biometric technologies.

The guys from IBG (International Biometrics Group) did their best to create an introduction to biometrics and their applications.
I'd say they did a reasonable job. There's not many books out there, so if you want to dip your toes in the biometric waters, this might be a good place.

Since 9/11, biometrics security, once relegated only to pages in magazine such as Security Management, is now a prime-time subject. While biometrics is not the cure-all many have made it out to be, it is an important area within information security.
The Wiley Tech Brief Biometrics: Identity Verification in a Networked World is an in-depth (but not too overbearing) and effective introduction to biometrics The book gives the reader a solid base on what they need to know about the technology, the biometric industry and the many challenges involved with implementing a biometric solution.
The book is an in-depth look at biometrics, focused on critical issues such as accuracy, privacy, technology capabilities, and cost-effective deployment. The book shows why organizations are looking at biometrics for user and consumer authentication. The book provides a broad conceptual understanding biometrics, and ends with a look at the factors involved when designing and deploying biometric-based systems.

There are very few people on earth who could have written this book. It addresses all key aspects of biometric technology and its deployment.
In particular, it includes many references to real world initiatives and presents perspectives on the emerging shape of the biometric industry that only seasoned professionals could provide.
It addresses what has been a very complex and fragmented industry in a very readable and satisfying way and will be of immense benefit to anyone associated with biometric deployment in the public or private sectors.
A "must have" for anyone interested in biometrics.
