IBIA Statement Regarding the Release of the National Research Council Report - Biometric Recognition: Challenges and Opportunities
Date:10/8/2010

/p>
  • Tens of millions of notebook computers shipped in the U.S. now include biometric sensors as an embedded feature to protect the owner's sensitive files and personal information from unauthorized access.  Similarly, biometrically-enabled smart phones and other mobile devices that provide biometric data protection are now being introduced in the U.S. after achieving widespread acceptance in international markets like Asia.
  • According to a recent news release from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Secure Communities initiative, which uses biometric information and services to identify and remove criminal aliens in state prisons and local jails, has resulted in the arrest of more than 59,000 convicted criminal aliens this year alone, including more than 21,000 convicted of major violent offenses like murder, rape, and the sexual abuse of children.  We can thank biometrics for the fact that these criminal aliens are no longer walking around freely in our society.
  • Department of Defense (DoD) directive 8521.01E issued in 2008 states that "Biometrics is an important enabler that shall be fully integrated into the conduct of DoD activities to support the full range of military operations."  Biometric technology is being used more and more by the military to protect our bases from unauthorized entry by evil-doers carrying fake credentials - as was the case in the Ft. Dix terrorist attack plot in 2007.  In addition, our combat troops rely on biometric technology to help identify insurgents and combatants in places like Afghanistan where the enemy wears no uniform and blends into the population.  Biometric technology is protecting our soldiers who are in harm's way.

If one reads beyond the release and summary into the body of the report itself, the authors clearly recognize that "Biometric systems perform well in many existing applications" and that "biometric
