Passive biometric customer identification and tracking system

A computer-based customer tracking system uses a passive biometric identification for identifying customers. Neither the customer, nor any establishment personnel, are required to enter any informational data with respect to the customer; identification is done completely biometrically. Biometric identification information is sent to a central computer processor, which searches files in a library for matching biometric data. If no match is found, the processor opens a new file in the library, assigning a code or identification number to the file. Information with respect to the customer's biometric data, along with any transactional information, are stored in the file. If prior activity information stored in the file exceeds a predetermined level, information with respect to the customer's prior activity is retrieved from the file and sent to a terminal, preferably at the location of the transaction. Any new information from the transaction is then sent to the processor and stored for future access. The processor scans the files periodically, and deletes files for which the activity level in the file is below a certain predetermined level over a preselected time period. Deletion of inactive files precludes the processor memory from being overloaded with information which is not useful to the establishment, and also reduces the amount of time necessary for the processor to search library files for biometric matches.

Methods and apparatus for restricting access of a user using random partial biometrics

A biometrics security method and apparatus are disclosed that restrict the ability of a user to access a device or facility using a portion of biometric data to validate the user's identity. Upon a user request to access a secure device or facility, the central biometric security system initially sends a first request for a specific sample of a portion of the user's biometric information. The specific sample may be identified, for example, using a set of image coordinates. A second request is also sent to retrieve the biometric prototype from a database of registered users. The central biometric security system then compares the user biometrics portion with the corresponding biometrics prototype portions. The user receives access to the requested device if the user biometrics portion(s) matches the corresponding biometrics prototype portions. In one variation, the biometric security system transmits a security agent to the user's computing device upon a user request to access a remote device. The security agent serves to extract user biometric portions in accordance with the sampling request from the central biometric security system. In another variation, a local recognition is performed before a remote recognition to reduce the risk of a failed server side recognition due to a poor biometrics feature.

Biometric authentication of a client network connection

A client is authenticated to a network resource wherein the client is coupled to a biometric sensor. The client signals a request to the network resource (e.g., by connecting to an access point). The network resource initiates a point-to-point LAN authentication protocol between the network resource and the client. The network resource requests biometric data from the client via the LAN authentication protocol (optionally either before or after authenticating with other credentials). The client captures biometric data of an attendant user of the client. The client transmits the captured biometric data to the network resource via the LAN authentication protocol. The network resource encapsulates the biometric data in the LAN authentication protocol into an authentication server protocol and forwards the encapsulated biometric data to an authentication server. The authentication server compares the biometric data to a biometric template stored in conjunction with the authentication server for making a determination whether the attendant user should be granted access to the network resource. The authentication server sends either an access-accept message or an access-deny message in the authentication server protocol to the network resource in response to the determination. The network resource grants access to the client only after receiving an access-accept message.

System and method for remote self-enrollment in biometric databases

A method and system is provided to provide enrollment of biometric data from individuals without the need for the enrollees to travel to a central location. The system and method provides for optionally detecting multiple types of biometric data, for example, fingerprints, facial scan, visual scan, iris scan, voice scan, or the like, to be captured at the point of enrollee use. During the biometric capture process, the biometric enrollment device monitors and establishes the identity of the enrollee and measures the quality of the biometric input as it occurs. If unacceptable quality is detected, then repeated biometric scans may be necessary, but is done at time of enrollment avoiding any need to send inaccurate information back to a service institution. When the enrollment process completes, the biometric data is encrypted, time stamped and either mailed back to the service institution or is transmitted back. The biometric device may remain with the user for subsequent use as an identification sensor which may authenticate a user with stored biometric information to authenticate a user's identity for a transaction or a request to access a service or equipment. The biometric enrollment device may also be embodied with another piece of equipment to authenticate use of that equipment.

Enclosure and biometric data collection for fingerprint sensor device

The enclosure assembly comprises a stationary member including at least two substantially parallel sidewalls, the sidewalls, the sidewalls partially defining a cavity in which the fingerprint sensor is disposed. An access piece, configured to move relative to the stationary member, has a surface area larger than the surface area of the fingerprint sensor and further includes a conductive portion electrically coupled to ground. A movement apparatus is preferably mechanically coupled to the stationary member and the moveable access piece. The movement apparatus is configured to maintain the moveable access piece in a position covering the fingerprint sensor and yet to allow motion of the moveable access piece relative to the stationary member so as to expose the fingerprint sensor. According to another embodiment, a method for enrolling a composite image of an object using a fingerprint sensor is provided. According to an embodiment, the method comprises the steps of receiving a finger disposed over a fingerprint sensor in a first stationary position; capturing a first image of a first portion of the finger with the fingerprint sensor; causing the finger to be repositioned over the fingerprint sensor in a second stationary position; capturing a second image of a second portion of the finger with the fingerprint sensor; and constructing a representative image of the finger from the first and second images.
