Biometrics for identifying people

A new Technical Report by the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission clarifies societal, cultural, and ethical issues related to the use of biometrics in security systems for identifying people.

ISO/IEC TR 24714-1:2008, Information technology – Biometrics – Jurisdictional and societal considerations for commercial applications – Part 1: General guidance, offers guidance on the design of systems that use biometric technologies to capture, process, and record biometric information.

Biometric technologies are currently required in many public and private sector applications worldwide to authenticate an individual's identity, secure national borders, and restrict access to secure sites including buildings and computer networks.
