Industry perspective: biometric technology

for biometric technology, many people know it through Hollywood blockbusters. In those high-tech movies, there are often shots of agents entering the core secret area through fingerprints, irises and palmprints. In the consciousness of ordinary people, biometric recognition technology is still a concept with scientific color. In fact, with the maturity of technology, biometric technology has gradually stepped out of the mysterious research room and began to penetrate into all aspects of ordinary people's daily life. In particular, biometric technology represented by fingerprint recognition has been applied in the fields of finance, education, medical treatment, social security and so on

biometrics is at its right time

the so-called biometric technology refers to the identification of individuals by using the inherent biological or behavioral characteristics of the human body through computers. Such as fingerprint, hand shape, eye iris, voice, face, DNA and other inherent physiological characteristics that are difficult to change for life, as well as handwriting, gait and other acquired behavioral characteristics

with the advent of the digital era, biometric technology is developing rapidly. Especially after "9.11", due to the needs of counter-terrorism, criminal investigation, information security, financial security and other aspects, the traditional identity recognition technology characterized by passwords is increasingly difficult to meet the high security requirements of these industries, and biometric technology has received special attention. The United States has successively signed the Patriot Act, the border visa act and the aviation security act since September 11, which all require biometrics to be used as a guarantee for legal implementation. It is required that this year? Biometrics such as fingerprints and irises were added to the passport 0 months ago. In June last year, the world civil aviation organization announced the application plan of biotechnology to its 188 Member States, proposing to add biometrics to personal passports and confirm personal identity when entering the borders of various countries. At present, the plan has been adopted by the United States, the European Union, Australia, Japan, South Korea, South Africa and other countries. The plan will be implemented at the end of 2004

China's biometric technology has also developed rapidly. At present, in Beijing, people can not only buy fingerprint locks and bid farewell to keys, but also upgrade the door locks to a more secure, convenient and humanized security system through the "face recognition access control management system"

a variety of recognition technologies

staring can represent the password, which is a portable iris identity authentication system; Say a few words to the computer, and the computer can recognize who you are. This is a remote identity authentication system. Voiceprint recognition technology is another biometric recognition technology that is moving towards maturity. Through voiceprint feature authentication, illegal personnel can be prevented from embezzling

the face recognition system being developed will be particularly useful to the public security system. Scientists said that if a suspect is found in the field, it only needs to take a picture of the suspect's face with a photographing color screen and send it to the server, and the server will immediately notify the identification results in the form of text messages, so as to quickly and accurately identify the suspect

gait recognition technology has also attracted much attention in the past two years. Gait recognition technology is to use people's walking posture for identity recognition. Unlike the first generation of identity recognition technologies that usually rely on human proximity or contact, such as fingerprints, irises and faces, a person's walking posture is the easiest to secretly capture from a long distance. The Pentagon is planning to use gait recognition technology to fight terrorism

recently, a new recognition technology has emerged in the world: Skull recognition. At present, the biometric authentication and evaluation center of the Institute of automation of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has set up a special research team

in terms of technology types, fingerprint recognition research is the earliest and most widely used biometric technology. Iris recognition technology has become a field of special concern in recent international research and application because of its high accuracy and almost impossible to forge; Face recognition technology is a key and hot spot in recent research. Especially affected by the plan on the application of face, fingerprint and iris technology in passports issued by the world civil aviation organization, major research institutions and multinational companies around the world have focused on investment and research in face recognition as the strategic commanding height of the next generation

relevant experts told that as an emerging technology, biometrics still needs to be further improved in terms of nuclear technology, especially the use algorithm related to specific applications, which also needs to make greater progress in theory. However, in the field of biometrics, there is little gap between domestic and foreign core technologies. Some domestic research results have reached a relatively advanced or even leading level in the world, but there is a large gap between domestic and international in terms of application technology, especially in terms of avoiding unexpected hardware acquisition technology. So far, there is no nationwide biometric technology practical system

biometrics is not impeccable

but the uniqueness of biometrics technology is not only the advantage of this technology, but also its congenital defect, by accelerating the release of products to the market. Since 2000, people in Germany, Japan, the United States, Britain and other countries have announced that they have successfully invented new materials and processes, which can easily collect fingerprints left anywhere by people, and successfully invalidate the original system with forged fingerprints. In this case, the uniqueness of biometrics is challenged

According to scientists, it is a feasible way to improve the anti-counterfeiting performance of the recognition system through peripheral methods. For example, the fingerprint identification system can identify the anti-counterfeiting features by simultaneously measuring the temperature, humidity, pressure, elasticity, etc. of the fingerprint; Iris can identify fake iris through eyelid recognition, iris dynamic recognition and other technologies; The anti-counterfeiting of face recognition can be improved through the processing of three-dimensional facial features

in the legal aspect, biometric technology also has many problems that need further discussion. As the only physiological feature of the human body, if it is stolen, it means that the whole digital data of this person will be leaked in the digital society. The risks of personal privacy and identity theft that may be brought about by this are the issues that governments must focus on when considering the application of biometric recognition technology

but in general, biometric recognition technology is a technology with broad application prospects. It is gradually penetrating into all aspects of social life from the scope of hot applications, until it is as ubiquitous as the air, but you can't feel its existence. Relevant experts believe that in the near future, we will use biology from starting the car in the morning to opening the door at home at night. We are eager to show our solid system expertise and feature recognition technology to customers in JEC exhibition. In the near future, we will live in a world of "ubiquitous biometrics"
