An argument for the implementation of a biometric authentication system ("BAS")
Biometric devices are automated means of recognizing a person based on either behavioral or physical characteristics, including fingerprints, and signature and voice verification. They may exist as hand held devices or as part of a larger interface, and may include a database composed of the biometric identifiers of participating individuals. A biometric authentication system would track computer crime, provide the security necessary for the development of electronic commerce. US law has yet to implement widespread regulation of biometrics and such regulation would have to comply with federal and state privacy laws.
