What is biometric data?
Biometric data is data about a biological organism or range of organisms used in biometric analysis, the science of analyzing biological organisms or systems. Although biometric data can mean data related to the study of biological phenomena, it is most often used to identify data used in the identification of specific biological organisms, mainly humans.
Biometrics are often used in systems that attempt to identify a particular user or other person through unique characteristics. Computer image processing is a form of biometric analysis that uses biometric data. Digital fingerprint analysis is also based on the use of biometric data for identification purposes.
There is a great demand for biometric data in most biometric analysis systems. This data must be saved and protected against unauthorized access. These systems rely on complex algorithms that sort data in a way that leads to an identifying result in a particular application. Developers use key features that are unique from one person to another to make biometric identification effective.
