In the world of computer science, advancements in many fields have been made. One field in particular is very interesting. The field is that of Biometrics. A field that essentially coincided with the growth of modern day computer science. Biometrics is essentially identifying human beings by their characteristics.

By determining these characteristics in an authentication inquiry, this information can then be saved in reference, for identification to determine if the user can be granted access to any private or secured location. This particular method of recognition is preferred to those such as, passwords, or pin numbers. Although these methods are still commonly used, with biometrics we are able to make sure the person being identified is physically present, and elements the hassle of remembering several passwords. These physiological techniques could include fingerprints, retinal scanning, voice patterning, facial recognitions, DNA analysis along with hand and finger geometry. Biometrics is such a rapidly improving technology, that has been previously used for years in forensics, such as identification, and prison security.
Biometrics will become a standard of everyday living in the future. These systems will start being used everywhere that privacy should be ensured. The funny thing about that is that it raises the question are we really being ensured privacy when we are being watched and scanned? Works Cited: 1. Watrall, Ethan.
