How to ensure positive identification of human beings throughout an open, free ecosystem that encompasses the collective political, physical, social, and economic environments, stretching well beyond the borders …? 5 Identity Theft and Fraud 6 Biometrics in Europe – Trend Reports 2006 and 2007 • With increasing identity fraud and emphasis on security , there is a growing and urgent need to efficiently identify humans both locally and remotely on a routine basis. • Whether it is a smart card , access token or biometric technique employed on the front end, the secret to positive identification is a robust technological infrastructure on the back end. • From the point of view of security, biometric measures to prevent interference by unauthorised persons constitute a particularly important means of protecting critical infrastructures . • A global breakthrough by biometrics in identity verification technology seems to be imminent in the form of its use in identity documents and corresponding biometrically-based controls at frontiers. • In considering the possibility of a new (biometric) identity card , any country should think of electronic identity as infrastructure , like a railway, electricity or transportation system. » European Biometric Portal 7 Very Large Scale Systems • The biometric enhancement of identity documents and smart cards and their global use in identity controls constitute a task on such a scale that experience to date (e.g. with pilot projects on border controls with limited number of participants) can, at best, provide only a rough estimate of the outcome. 8 Quick quiz – what do these numbers represent?...
