Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL IS SUBMITTED, NOT AS A COMPLETE PHYSICAL SECURITY CONCEPT, BUT AS AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH FOR RAPID AND ACCURATE PERSONNEL IDENTIFICATION. IT HAS LONG BEEN ACCEPTED THAT VOICEPRINTS, A DERIVATION OF THE WAVEFORM OF A PERSON'S VOICE, ARE NEARLY AS ACCURATE AS FINGERPRINTS. OUR RESEARCH INDICATED THAT A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF ZERO-CROSSINGS COULD LIKEWISE BE NEARLY AS ACCURATE AS FINGERPRINTS. THIS APPROACH WOULD ALLOW THE INFORMATION TO BE PROCESSED ON A MICROCOMPUTER. IN ADDITION, IF A SPEECH OUTPUT DEVICE WERE USED IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE SPEECH INPUT DEVICE THE SYSTEM COULD BECOME INTERACTIVE. THE USER WOULD CONTINUE TALKNG UNTIL THE SYSTEM DETERMINES IF THIS IS OR IS NOTTHE CORRECT PERSON.
