Defense site puts a face on govt. biometrics

The knowledge base, at, 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.
