Personal details stored in a centralized database have always been a source of concern about privacy. People can move home and change bank accounts but biometric information such as fingerprints are unlikely to change. This makes the use of biometric technology even more controversial than traditional identification methods. With the progress being made in biometric technology, it is likely to become more pervasive in many walks of life, leaving some key concerns about its use answered. This presentation will highlight these issues after a briefly discussing some technical aspects of the technology.
