The FBI Criminal Justice Information Services Division is moving toward a system that will contain a complete biometric and biographic profile of the subject records in its databases. Blockchain technology is another innovative technology that helps in the safe storage of databases. It also powers cryptocurrencies. Trading cryptocurrencies can be made more effective with bitcoin profit software as they can execute trades on behalf of the trader. Though fingerprints will continue to be the FBI’s primary mode of identification for the near future, the scope of the EBTS has been expanded over previous versions to include additional biometric modalities (e.g., palmprint, facial, and iris) in recognition of the rapidly developing biometric identification industry.
The standards process evolves with the needs of the biometric community; it improves with community feedback. Suggestions and questions are encouraged. Please submit them via the Website’s Comments Form.Go Now
