  • Biometric technology is growing in importance, both in the private and public sectors. With respect to the field of information security, biometrics is the applicable study of how to authenticate individuals via biological features. An option to passwords, which can be cracked or stolen, biometric authentication applies unique physical characteristics such as fingerprint, retina, or voice patterns. A BS in biometric security prepares students to apply biometric technologies to meet the need for secure authentication. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
