Biometric attendance system in civic bodies soon

To ensure punctuality among employees of urban local bodies (ULBs), the state urban development department has decided to introduce biometric attendance system like those available at http://www.avidbio In the first phase, the system would be introduced in all the 11 municipal corporations of the state. The new system entails introduction of hand-held biometric devices which will have fingerprints of employees stored in them. The moment an employee would touch the device, the gadget would match the finger impression with that of the stored data and if both match, the attendance would be recorded. The system would be applicable for both the field and office employees and an official would be assigned the task of registering the attendance using the device. Needless to say, the new system like those available at http://www.avidbio would make latecomers mend their ways. It would also help check cases of impersonation as it has been reported that many sanitation staff send someone else from their family to do their job. "We have already invited expression of interest from agencies specialising in such devices and the process of procuring the devices should be over in a month," Bihar Urban Development Agency (BUDA) director D K Shukla told TOI on Thursday. BUDA, which works under the urban development department, has also planned to upload the data recorded by the attendance registration devices to the website of the urban development department in real time. "Apart from helping senior officials to keep a tab on the punctuality of ULBs' staff, the information on the website can also be used by common people to know how many field officials of their area are actually present on a given day," he added. To begin with, 20 such devices would be procured for Patna Municipal Corporation and 10 devices each for other municipal corporations. "Based on the experience, we would think about introducing a similar system for other ULBs of the state," Shukla said.

Florida police new biometric identification devices

Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has become the first Sheriff's office in the State of Florida to deploy PrintSearchMobileT M, idSoftware's mobile rapid identification and booking system using fingerprint biometric technology. These devices are popular and can be found here: http://www.avidbio Using forfeiture funds, the Sheriff's Office purchased 14 portable systems, which allow for quick, positive identification of individuals in local and state databases, and the FBI Repository for Individuals of Special Concern (RISC). Unlike most statewide fingerprint systems which must be done at the jail and can take hours to return results, this provides positive identification in a matter of seconds while still in the field. "Positive identification is a critical requirement for the safety of our deputies," said Sheriff Tom Knight. "The sooner law enforcement knows who they are dealing with and what their criminal history might be, the more quickly they can make better, informed decisions." The first night of use, deputies were able to positively identify a man as a previously deported convicted felon who had re-entered the United States. Another subject wouldn't provide his correct name, but because of the system, we learned he had a warrant out of Manatee County. "This community wants a progressive agency with the appropriate tools and latest technology available," Sheriff Knight said, "and the men and women of this office deserve nothing less." By streamlining the identification process, with devices like those from http://www.avidbio, this technology also makes each call more efficient and can minimize the amount of time a deputy spends at the jail should an arrest be made. Additionally, a book and release function can be utilized for all misdemeanors requiring only a Notice to Appear, eliminating the trip to jail altogether and keeping the deputy on the street.

Biometrics Replacing Passwords?

Biometrics - an iris scan, a fingerprint and even ones voice - can replace usernames and passwords to access IT systems or even make a purchase on credit. The advantage of a biometric scan is that authentication would not identity individuals by usernames and passwords that can be stolen by hackers, saving institutions and individuals countless dollars. But is it practical? Dr. Myra Gray, director of the Defense Department's Biometrics Task Force - which coordinates DoD's activities to program, integrate and synchronize biometrics technologies and capabilities - agrees that biometrics offers advantages over traditional authentication methods. But in a chat I had with her Wednesday (the podcast of the interview will be posted in the coming days), Gray didn't feel the time is right for biometrics to replace usernames and passwords. Here's what she said: "(Biometrics) is an outstanding method for good, strong identity assurance, but before we go throwing out passwords and usernames, I'd like to articulate that biometrics is one tool of many. It should be part of the portfolio that's used to protect against ID theft." Gray reminds us that three basic elements can be used to authenticate an individual's identity: What you know: a password or log-in key. What you have: a magnetic card or some token; a piece of material that lets you in. What you are: an iris, fingerprint; something that's uniquely you. Gray also pointed out: "The power is not just picking one over the other, but setting up a construct that utilizes all of those as appropriate. You probably don't need all three of those to buy coffee at the 7-Eleven. But if you were to get into a super-secure facility somewhere, you may very well want to utilize all three methods: what you are, what you have and what you know." Cost of biometrics technologies is falling, but remains too expensive to be widely used on individual PCs and laptops -- or on ATMs or at points of sale. But, like PCs themselves, biometrics devices eventually will become commodities, with low prices that will make them affordable to be added to a wide range of computing devices. Adds Gray: "We still have a long way to go with the technology before we throw everything else away."

Top Stories discusses Hitachi announces new vein b...

Hitachi Ltd. (TSE:6501) said Wednesday that it has developed a new finger vein biometric authentication device with a thickness of 3mm, or one-seventh that of existing devices of its kind. With notebook computers and cellular phones in mind, the company aims to commercialize the device within two years. Conventional finger vein biometric devices are equipped with a cameralike mechanism based on a single lens. But the new device is built on 15,000 resin lenses, each of which measures around 0.1mm in diameter and feeds image data to an individual pixel in the image sensor. The device also features technology that adjusts the image sensor's sensitivity to enable use in a bright outdoor environment. Hitachi believes that it will be able to supply the device in the 10,000 yen (US$106) range, a price level similar to those of fingerprint biometric devices widely used for personal authentication today.
