For any biometric to be successfully used for identification or verification, the database and technology used to obtain and maintain comparison samples must be properly implemented and managed. The Integrated Automate Fingerprint Information System (IAFIS) maintained by the FBI is the world’s largest and most successful fingerprint database.
Respond to the following in your paper:
- Why does the IAFIS work so well?
- What measures must be in place for new and emerging biometrics databases to be effective?
- Cite an example of an emerging biometrics database and its future potential.
- Support your work with properly cited research and examples of the selected biometrics applied in the public and private sector.
