To ensure that access control systems control where people and not credentials can and cannot go
Biometrics is the science of analyzing physical or behavioral characteristics specific to each individual in order to be able to authenticate their identity. Keys, ID badges, passwords, and codes are effective security measures, but they can also be replicated, stolen, lost, or forgotten. A biometric ID is tied to a physical characteristic that is unique to the carrier – facial recognition, the geometry of a palm, the shape of an iris, or the pattern of a fingerprint.
Using biometric data for access control is more secure because it requires the individual to be physically present when authenticating – unlike a password or a badge, biometric markers aren’t transferable. Biometrics can also be used in conjunction with other access control technologies in high security environments as a part of dual authentication measures.
