One of the complaints about adopting biometrics from the standpoint of integrators and end users has been the lack of standards. The National Biometric Security Project is working to correct that problem. Earlier this week, the organization released its report â€œBiometric Standardization 2005 â€“ Status, Progress and Plansâ€, which it hopes to continually pull biometrics into a data transmission and scanning format that can become applicable across the industry. What this means: It might be possible eventually that a fingerprint scan for a drivers license could be the same data in a usable format that you use to secure your corporate headquarters' data center.
