What is biometrics? Think of unique markers, or "...metrics related to human characteristics," as Wikipedia says, that are used by computer systems to identify, secure and grant (or not grant) access to information and data. These features are also what is driving Internet of Things or IoT device to help keep you safe.
Today, more manufacturers of connected devices are looking at using biometrics for security reasons. They are using these new technologies to help protect your devices from hackers. To help you learn about the leading biometrics used today, GearBrain has created a unique slideshow below. if you would like more in-depth information on biometrics, visit our article, Ditch The Password: Your Fingerprint Is About To Control Your Life
Other New Biometrics: Behavior (Gait or Signatures)
There are more and more new biotmetics being tested today to help secure our identities, privacy and new connected devices. We are hearing more about use of the shape of your ears, lip prints, footprints, odor, sweat pores and DNA. We expect only a few of these will become part of everyday security authentication.
Behavior is a new way of tackling the issues and can be used to help identify us. New biometics like Gait (how we walk), our signature (handwriting), or even the way we type on a computer keyboard are new ways to help identify us in today's ever changing world.
