Researchers working on advanced technologies to replace passwords with iris and fingerprint scans


Researchers from the International Center for Biometrics Research within the US-based Purdue University are working on advanced technologies that would enable the replacement of passwords with advanced technologies, such as iris and fingerprint scans.

According to a news report on the matter, iris and fingerprint scans as well as facial and voice recognition are just a few of the tools that can improve security while making lives easier, said Stephen Elliott, the center’s director.

Tensor plc already supplies an extensive range of biometric-based access control solutions, including here the Tensor HSCAN3000, which is one of the fastests biometric hand scanners on the market and works by scanning and recording a 3D image of the hand each time the employee punches. The hand’s size and the shape are used to check their identity against the existing database, providing a very good level of accuracy (without actually using any fingerprint scanning in the process).

Tensor’s HSCAN3000 hand scanner terminal employs red and green indicator lights in order to clearly notify the user of a positive or negative match. Plus, it grants fast and easy access to a series of very useful features, such as Edit-at-the-Clock Functions and Bell Schedules, which enable employers to set the day, time, and duration of a series of bells that can be programmed to signal the beginning or end of a shift, lunch, or break.

Additional important features worth mentioning include door control and the ability to connect multiple units at a single site via an Ethernet network connection.
