Fujitsu is one of a number of companies now integrating these technologies into company systems. Dr Alex Bazin is their Head of Biometrics. I caught up with him during a visit to Australia this week to find out what sort of applications are the most viable for companies interesting in using biometrics.
A while back one man in Japan used the galatin in a Gummi Bears packet to create a mould of a fake finger that could fool fingerprint readers. So has the technology moved on since then and just how secure is biometric identification?
