Final program : Biometrics based high-value services. A meeting organized jointly by
Does the expanding use of biometrics mean they will complement or replace the current authentication methods, like smartcards? Biometrics is becoming increasingly commonplace, but questions around implementation, openness and evaluation have not really been addressed. The market is clearly waiting for certain key features to be fleshed out before it will really take off. For example, interoperability must be made standard, so service providers can accept the authenticators deployed and consumers are not limited in where they can shop for goods and services. Similarly, a simple, consistent user approach needs to be developed and deployed so consumers can enjoy the same experience for all services. Finally, security must be made a priority right from the beginning of the design phase and evaluation and certification schemes must be set up and recognized.
