QUOTE: The biometrics concept — using a fingerprint,a hand shape, an eye structure, a voice pattern or another physical characteristic as an identification token— has been kicking around for several decades, especially in older science fiction. But the approach is now gaining traction, as successful biometric systems become cheaper and easier to use and as the need for enhanced security continues to grow.

Since both biometrics and conventional security methodologies remain imperfect, a growing number of security experts suggest using biometrics to complement and enhance existing security approaches rather than replace them.
