TeleTrusT Working Group Biometrics


The TeleTrusT Working Group "Biometrics" aims to provide exchange of knowledge on biometrical procedures in order to promote acceptance and practical use of such technology. Biometrics - depending on its field of application - can be designed in a way that allows comfortable utilization and increased security.

Within the frame of the Working Group experts can find a unique opportunity to understand different evaluations of possibilities and risks. TeleTrusT's approach reflects an all-embracing view considering a variety of aspects, e.g. security, data protection, legal usability and user acceptance. Based on a more general understanding biometrics can gain trust in today's daily life and become reality, without being reduced to just a marketing hype.
