Biometry, identity and information security for e-services business

To investigate a biometry-based method for creating prototypes for use in the field of electronic services for identity and information security processes.

BIOMET SECURITY is a challenge for today's understanding, that biometrics can not be normally used for daily services, just for experiments and deep research. The service development, information technology growth and the increasing flow of information these days makes the necessity to use more sophisticated IT solutions in business, which would ensure a successful data flow and safety for business processes. Now, using the available data and making use of existing technologies, biometric security is still the only reliable protection against fraud, theft and manipulation of data. Because of technological complexity and specialised equipment, it is problematic for business to establish the efficiency and possible application suitability of the product they want to create. Project goal is to investigate biometry-based method for creating prototypes use in the field of electronic services for identity and information security processes. The main objectives in BIOMET SECURITY are: * Select methods suitable for use in the project objectives; * To investigate the biometry-based technologies that could use the selected method; * To investigate theoretical applications and determine their physical adaptability; * Simulate and build a prototype; * Optimise the obtained results; * Identify the product efficiency; * Set performance thresholds that correspond with access control requirements. To achieve this, the project will include: - Updated existing and expanded available safety research laboratory infrastructure, which will be used to test security, identification and biometrical fields and try to achieve an overall result of combining these areas; - Recruiting of international institutions interdisciplinary research group, consulting with business structures for prototype creation and their efficiency determination. - Creation of demonstrational technology prototypes, which will be used by students to carry out scientific work practice. - Analysis of the market needs and adaptation of the processes to meet the needs. In the field of biometrics, iris recognition methods are sufficient [1-3], but even with the results - the methods have not yet selected than one method or the parts that are perfectly suited for access control of electronic services. Due to their specific needs (water resistance, plaque, height control, scanning speed, the change in body temperature, physical exertion, etc.) in business services area, for the selection of appropriate methods need specifics. Good choice of method requires scientific analysis carried out by the methods, techniques and classification according to the needs of other work tasks required to implement the actions. The project consortium is organised to perfectly correspond with all interested parties: research (DevCom,), technical consulting and sales part (Datavision Co.Ltd), prototype development (Vilnius Gediminas Technical University in Lithuania), ensured application in business (JSC nSoft, DevCom). Likely due to the success of the project partners in the project consortium: Geographical sector (Different European Countries and Asia) will be huge market potential, scientific institutions competence to expect reasonable and rational decisions, the private sector experience in the programming pass control devices, and in this case, the interest in the commercialisation of project results provide a reasonable success of the project of European success (also Asia). Often, biometric projects, research does not ensure the continuity of the private sector neglect of scientific progress, marketing arrangements and non-use of scanned data security deficiency in this area. In this case, it is differently. The companies that are initiating the project are capable to realise the project because: * Financial, human resources and experience in R & D of the companies are sufficient to realise the project; * The long-term collaboration with research and study institutions forms premises to the relocation of high added value to the products and services that are planned to create (commercialising research results and use them in creating world saleable innovative products); * There are no direct competitors on the market for the solution currently being created, that is why if the creation of the biometrical system prototype will be successful, it will be available to invest in real product development and their profitable sale.
