Biometric fingerprint scan. Computer artwork of a human fingerprint overlaid with a printed circuit board (PCB), representing fingerprint scanning. Fingerprints contain unique patterns that can be used to determine the identity of an individual. When a fingerprint is scanned, a computer will divide the scan into areas that are then compared to information already stored in a database. The process of automated identification of people using unique physiological traits is known as biometric identification.
