The Defense Department's Biometrics Knowledgebase System, which restricts some content to .gov and .mil domains, will serve as a central government source for biometrics policy and practices.
The knowledge base, at www.bfc-kno.army.mil
, is the home to product testing criteria, reports, surveys, white papers, background research, glossaries and tutorials on fingerprint, iris, voice, facial and hand geometry biometrics.
More than 100 users have registered, a center spokesman said, and he expects 100 times that number to join each year.
The site's security includes firewalls, packet monitoring, domain network filters, passwords and encryption.
