New whitepapers from IBIA address questions about biometrics
The International Biometrics + Identity Association (IBIA) has released two new white papers that address questions about biometrics and how they help to solve the challenges of identity in our digital age.
“The Biometric Answer to the Identity Challenge” lays out the context for the use of biometrics for identification in today’s world. “Biometrics Explained: Answers to 13 Basic Biometrics Questions” addresses some of the most common questions about biometrics in order to inform a forthright discussion about their use.
Earlier this year the IBIA responded directly to a critical report by Georgetown University’s Center on Privacy & Technology (CPT) on the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s biometric exit pilots with a white paper titled “Setting the Record Straight on Face Scans in Biometric Exit” that contradicts all of the major findings of the CPT’s report.
