Nowadays, biometrics find application as an integral component of identity management systems. The recent rapid growth of the size and popularity of such systems has prompted research into technologies which support efficient, secure, and accurate processing of large amounts of biometric data. This presentation will provide an introduction to said topics and challenges specifically associated with biometric identification (1:N search). Furthermore, examples of academic research will be presented and discussed in the context of applicability in real deployments of biometric systems.
Pawel Drozdowski is a researcher with the Faculty of Computer Science, Hochschule Darmstadt, Germany, where he works on research projects in the context of the National Research Center for Applied Cybersecurity ATHENE. His interests within biometrics include efficient algorithmic solutions for large-scale database searches, information fusion, privacy and template protection, as well as ethical aspects of such systems, especially concerning demographic bias and fairness. He co-authored more than 20 scientific publications in the field of biometrics and represents the German Institute for Standardization (DIN) in ISO/IEC SC37 JTC1 SC37 on biometrics.
