January's topic will be "Fundamentals of Biometrics" presented by Eric Murphy
Biometrics has come to the forefront with Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint reader in the iPhone. Biometrics is now a mainstay with computer systems security, and it’s worthwhile for everyone to understand how biometric technologies work. In this meeting, I will cover the fundamentals of the three primary biometric modalities: finger, face and iris. I will also better define what biometrics data is and how it can be used for authentication and identification. Finally, I will present opportunities to use open source biometrics as well as Apple’s Touch ID APIs to make your software biometrics-enabled.
Eric Murphy has been working professionally as a Software Developer/Architect for over 12 years. Eric’s primary background is with Java, Spring and J2EE web applications.
