Biometric Data Security

This report provides analysis of different aspects of biometric data security, threats, and corresponding solutions. Three primary topics featuring vulnerabilities and solutions are discussed based on current industry growth: fingerprint technologies on smartphones, biometric implementations in enterprise & BYOD, and system security both from a conceptual and a technical framework. Biocryptography, cyberattacks, privacy, system integrity and other security topics are broken down into individual aspects and reformulated to construct a biometric security framework, suggestions for implementation, and guidelines on what to avoid.
