Workshop: Biometrie - Biosig 2011 am 8./9. September 2011

(PresseBox) (Darmstadt, ) With the increasing deployment of ePassports and citizen cards most European citizens have already actively participated in a biometric enrolment process. Biometric verification at the Schengen Borders with ePassports and the Visa Infor-mation System (VIS) are now introduced on a wider scale. However at the same time a number of research topics are yet unsolved and need to be tackled.

Innovation is needed for multimodal biometric systems including new modalities such as 3D-face and 3D-finger, multi-spectral fingerprint or vein and the observation of many more behavioural biometric characteristics.

Security analysis of biometric systems and components remains to be essential. This includes fake resistance of sensors, biometric information protection and crypto-biometrics to enhance the privacy of data subjects and to protect biometric references. Moreover security analysis and certification of security properties need to be developed.Beyond that biometrics can contribute to the security of large scale systems such as the VIS or numerous widely used systems such as personal mobile devices, e-Banking or e-Health systems.

Critical success factors in those applications are among others the compliance to standards and the early assessment of sample quality with standardized metrics. All of these techniques and applications are expected to have an ethical, social, and legal impact on our everyday life. Further research and development is needed in order to improve the state-of-the-art towards higher maturity and better biometric performance, interoperability, scalability, system reliability and usability.

The two-day Biometrics-Event (BIOSIG 2011) addresses these issues and will present innovations and best practices that can be transferred into future applications. The conference is jointly organized by CAST, the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI), the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC), the BEST network (BEST), the TeleTrusT-Association, the Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED) and the Biometrics special interest group BIOSIG of the Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V. (GI).
