Workshop C: Biometric Authentication: Its Use And Integration With Passwords, Smartcards, Pki, And Other Technologies To Strengthen Access Control – DAON

8:30 AM – 11:30 AM

Continental breakfast will be provided at 8:00 a.m. for the morning workshop attendees.

Attend this workshop for an in-depth look at the area of biometric user authentication, primarily for access control purposes. We will investigate biometric authentication contexts, architectures, paradigms and protocols and the differences between biometric authentication and more traditional (secrets-based) authentication methods. Learn where biometric authentication fits within the larger information and physical security domains and infrastructures, as well as its role within a credential-based access control system. In addition, you will gain an understanding of:

  • How biometric authentication relates to and can be used with other related technologies (e.g., passwords/PINs, tokens/smartcards, and PKI), including multi-factor authentication implementations
  • The security requirements and mechanisms required to implement biometric authentication effectively
  • The advantages and concerns of incorporating the “what you are” method to your logical or physical access system
  • Issues and considerations such as secrecy/integrity, revocation, etc.
  • What standards exist or are in progress that support the implementation of biometric authentication
