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

technologies appear poised for broader use." "There is no question that biometrics in the real world contributes significantly to effective identity systems," said Walter Hamilton, IBIA's Chairman and President.  

IBIA appreciates the work and dedication of the writing committee and those that provided input to the work effort including experts from the biometrics industry.  We agree with many of the findings in the body of the report and believe that the content provides useful guidance on designing and implementing effective identity systems based on biometric technology. We also support the report's recommendations for further research into biometric technology and systems that will continue to advance the state of the art of biometric technology.  We do note, however, that the bulk of the committee's fact-finding took place between 2004 and 2006; and there have been significant advancements in the technology, testing processes and standards for biometrics since that time.

IBIA believes that the report would have been more useful as a reference document to guide future biometric implementation and research if the press release and summary had framed its analysis in a real world context.  Since "biometric technologies are poised for broader use," a more balanced approach, outlining the benefits and challenges of biometrics, would have been more constructive for the identification technology industry and for a society that increasingly relies on biometrics for its security.
