Caption: Fingerprint scanning. Conceptual computer artwork of fingerprint scanning and analysis. Fingerprints are unique for each individual. A computer can be programmed to pick out the identifying features of a fingerprint and match a print to those held on a database. This technology is used by forensic scientists when analysing fingerprints left at the scene of a crime. Biometric information, such as fingerprint or iris patterns, can be stored as binary code (series of ones and zeros), and incorporated into identification (ID) cards or passports to verify the identity of the user. Fingerprint and iris scanning technology can also be used for secure access to particular buildings.
