Use of Authentication Mechanisms and Biometrics in Norwegian Industry
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis will estimate use of authentication mechanism and biometric systems used in Norwegian industry. We will investigate how different factors influence the usage and application of authentication/identification systems and we will look at biometric systems requirements. The input data for this project will be collected from various types of companies/organizations in Norway by a suitable data collection method. We want to analyze correlation between answers of different respondents. Authentication technologies that will be reviewed in this thesis include: username/password, token, fingerprint, face recognition, Iris and Retina recognition, voice recognition, signature recognition, ear recognition and gait authentication, keystroke dynamics and mouse recognition. We will look at legislations and regulations to understand how they can be either helpful or a hindrance implementing biometric systems. In order to become aware of the regulations we need not only to review European countries laws but also should know about exceptions that may exist in Norwegian regulations related to biometric data. We will contact relevant organizations in order to find detail information about the biometric data laws.
