Abstract or Summary:
As organizations search for more secure authentication methods for user access, e-commerce, and other security applications, biometrics is gaining increasing attention. But should your company use biometrics? And, if so, which ones should you use and how do you choose them? There is no one best biometric technology. Different applications require different biometrics.

To select the right biometric for your situation, you will need to navigate through some complex vendor products and keep an eye on future developments in technology and standards. Your options have never been more diverse. After years of research and development, vendors now have several products to offer. Some are relatively immature, having only recently become commercially available, but even these can substantially improve your company's information security posture. We briefly describe some emerging biometric technologies to help guide your decision making.
