College deploys biometric identification software to help students authenticate online

Tensor Biometric Access Control Readers

Biometric access control systems and biometric identification software can be employed for a variety of purposes, including that of ensuring that only people with the right credentials are allowed to access sensitive materials and content.

This is is specifically what Central Texas College (CTC) is using such a system for. The CTC is a community college system with a number of branch campuses throughout the world and because of its global student population, it needed a way to ensure their students are who they said they were and wanted to eliminate the possibility of login credentials being shared for cheating, a news report has revealed.

Another important reason why the college opted for the implementation of a biometric identification system is to avoid rising loan fraud issues. Loan fraud is characterized by fake students dropping classes before the census date, allowing fraudsters to pocket loan monies with little chance of recovery by schools.

Tensor Biometric Access Control Systems and Biometric Identification Software – superior reliability and complete peace of mind

Biometric technology uses human physical attributes as locks and keys, making it particularly suitable for access control systems on the buildings of large organisations. Using biometrics for security and identification requires meeting two challenges: they must be cheap enough and sufficiently simple to be used by ordinary users. Furthermore, for enhanced security, these biometric access control systems should combine two or more types of authentication, such as coupling fingerprints with key codes or passwords to provide greater trust that who is logging in is only who is expected to do so.
