About biometrics in the US in education sector

Security of data and assets has been a key concern for enterprises, banks, government organizations, telecommunications, hospitals, as well as individuals. Keys, identity badges, and numeric keypads were previously being used to prevent unauthorised access. Technological advancements resulted in the introduction of two-factor authentication, wherein individuals could gain access to secure premises after being authenticated using two different components, such as hardware devices and numeric codes. However, hackers also could easily gain access to hardware devices and obtain numeric codes.

In 1999, biometrics was introduced to identify individual traits based on behavioural and physiological characteristics of individuals that could not be replicated easily. It includes voice recognition, palm geometry recognition, DNA identification, gait recognition, fingerprint matching, facial recognition, iris recognition, signature verification, and vein recognition. Also, biometrics are considered to be more reliable compared to physical devices and numeric codes. In addition, biometric traits cannot be lost or forgotten by an individual. Biometrics use verification and identification to authenticate an individual. Verification is a one-on-one process used to match biometric traits of an individual against a particular template. However, identification is a matching process where the biometric traits of an individual are matched against all templates in the database to determine an individual's identity.

Apart from biometrics such as fingerprint, facial, and iris, a number of other emerging biometrics, such as voice and palm vein, are discussed later in the report.

Technavio's analysts forecast the biometrics market in the US in education sector to grow at a CAGR of 23.65% over the period 2014-2019.
