How government biometrics are moving into the private sector

Biometrics have been used in the government sector for many years, with fingerprint recognition being the first practical adoption of the technology. Over a century ago, law enforcement began fingerprinting criminals, recording them on paper cards which were stored in filing cabinets and warehouse repositories. Today, advances in computer and mobile technology allow a police officer to readily fingerprint a suspect using a biometrics app downloaded to his or her smartphone. Fingerprint biometrics are also used for access to security-restricted buildings and are an accurate digital identification solution for various government applications such as border control, national identification cards, voter registration and passports.
As security attacks become more pervasive and sophisticated, biometrics will become an essential component of identity management. The online identities predominantly used today will be replaced by the more nuanced and accurate identifiers that biometrics can provide. Private industries are starting to adopt biometric recognition technologies that replace traditional usernames and passwords to provide increased security for enhanced consumer experiences and transactions.
