New Federal Rules Would Make Your Biometric Data Internet-Accessible

A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… christina ortiz Tags:#Internet of Things#web Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Anyone can tell you that the future of information is in Web-based services like the cloud. Who would’ve thought, though, that this would also apply to the biological information that identifies who you are?The National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed a protocol for the capturing and storage of biometric information. Biometric authentication, otherwise know as ‘biometrics’, is used to identify people using iris scans, fingerprints and facial recognition. The protocol would allow any Internet-enabled mobile device to access the information captured by sensors through a Web service, similar to the way Netflix streams movies to devices. Doing this simplifies the process of providing and collecting identity information because it doesn’t rely on different devices to store it, just one controlled Web service platform. Currently this information is stored through proprietary devices, making it impossible to share it among different platforms.So, if you don’t work for a super secret government agency, what does this have to do with you? Biometrics is something people use on a daily basis, whether they know it or not. Think about office spaces that require keycards for entry, if all of the information stored in that card was on a cloud-based service instead, it would make it more cost-effective for companies to implement better security.  Even theme parks could implement this protocol for employee access to restricted areas. If the NIST’s plan to bring this service to market goes through, a more relatable example would be the check-in desk at your local gym. Most gyms use barcode emblazoned key tags or cards to identify who you are, some even use thumbprint scanners. With this protocol, one could scan their phone on the sensor just as quickly as they would with a key tag. If protocols like this are implemented, the future of identification may not be too far away. The NIST is currently working with the Small Business Innovations Research Program to have devices built within two years. Want to get more technical? Check out the video below for an in-depth description of how the NIST new protocol will work.  Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

Chinas Huawei Unveils the Worlds Slimmest Smartphone

first_img China’s Huawei unveiled its flagship smartphone, the Ascend P6, at its first standalone launch event on Tuesday, underlining its ambitions to compete with Apple and Samsung in the top tier of mobile technology.The company says the device, at 6.18 mm thick, is the world’s slimmest. It has a 5 megapixel front-facing camera, designed for taking “selfies,” or pictures of the owner to be shared on social media networks.The company picked the launch date — 6/18 (June 18) — to tie in with the smartphone’s dimensions.The launch, at an arts venue in North London, takes a cue from Apple and Samsung, both of which have made new product announcements at high profile events for a number of years.Previously Huawei unveiled its handsets at industry trade shows like Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.Huawei, which also makes telecom networking gear, is looking to drive sales of its consumer devices, a sector in which it has only had its own brand for about three years.The company was the fourth-largest maker of smartphones in the first quarter of 2013, trailing LG Electronics and the two dominant brands Apple and Samsung, according to analyst firm Gartner. The top two sold more than 100 million units between them, while LG sold 10 million and Huawei 9 million, most of which were in its native China.The Ascend P6 uses Huawei’s customized version of Google’s Android operating system.Industry analyst Ben Wood at CCS Insight said that at the right price the Ascend P6 would attract buyers who had not considered Huawei before.”Huawei P6 is darn thin,” he tweeted. But he added that the device was not, at this stage, compatible with the high speed, next generation 4G networks, which are being rolled out across the world.Carolina Milanesi at Gartner said she would have liked to see a more original design instead of something that tries to position the brand as an alternative to Apple by going with a similar rounded metal design.Overall it shows that Huawei is working towards their goal of becoming a top brand by 2015, she said.(Editing by Jane Merriman) 2 min read Enroll Now for Free Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now This story originally appeared on Reuters This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.
