Passwords and keys are not the way things work any more. Today, you can unlock your smart phone by touching the screen or gain access to a building just by looking into a device by the door that could be mistaken for a small spy camera. These are just two of the many ways biometrics have moved from sci-fi fantasy into mainstream reality.

Biometrics is the measurement and statistical analysis of a person's unique physical and behavioral traits, usually used for purposes of identification and access control. The most commonly used traits include fingerprints, iris patterns, DNA, and other unique patterns found in the face, voice, and palm. Less common are characteristics like keystroke patterns or word choice in written materials. Learn about this exciting career today!
