NISlecture by A.J. Han Vinck

28. April
NISlecture 2017/4 (28.04.2017, 12.15-13.00 in K102)

Title: Biometric systems based on communication principles

Speaker: A.J. Han Vinck, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany

Abstract:  A biometric system is a technological system that uses information about a person to identify that person. We will discuss the connection between Biometric systems and Information/Communication theory. Several authentication system implementations will be explained and their performance analysed. We will pay attention to the tradeoff between information security and reliability of biometric data.
