Once the domain of science-fiction films, biometrics are increasingly being used as a mainstream means to confirm identity. Mark Caswell puts his finger on the pulse of this new technology. Full story...

Our datacenters have used biometric authentication in addition to passcodes for some time, Iris scan in some, finger print in others.

But i also worked in an office maybe 5 years ago that had 3 forms of security, an electronic key, a pin code and a finger print. (Not to mention a entrance tunnel that was only allowing 1 person to pass) and this was not a top secret organisation or anything like that just a regular company that i am sure a lot of you have used there products.
A very very professional smallish organisation indeed. (With a very capable IT department, i would love to see what its like now)
