Abstract
Secure trusted biometric validation of identity has never been more important. The increase in global terrorism, unfettered identity theft and new legislation requiring multi-factor authentication are a few of the driving factors. The biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in mobile computing. Millions of new mobile devices are rapidly replacing traditional computers in both commercial and public sector organizations. This project seeks to develop a new wireless multi-modal biometric acquisition systems that will deliver biometrics information securely over standard web services. Our objective is to build on Phase I and produce a hardware design and software package that is ready to enter into mass production.
