Biometric Web Services
Combining biometrics and web services to enable multimodal biometric interoperability and enhance mobile identification and remote authentication.
"Web services" is a general term given to machine-to-machine communication using the same protocols that underlie the web. The power of web services comes from their deep market penetration. Our computers, cellular phone, set-top boxes (i.e., digital video recorders, cable boxes)—even our alarm clocks—all natively understand these common protocols.
By using Web services as a means for interoperability, the capabilities and reach of biometrics is significantly improved.
For example, Web services enable
