the biometrics market
1.1 Definition and scope of study
Biometrics, whose literal meaning means the measurement of the human body, refers to a set of techniques designed to recognize a person's identity based on their physical and biological characteristics (eyes, hand, voice, etc.). Biometrics can either identify a person, i.e. recognize them in the middle of a crowd for example, or authenticate a person, i.e. provide their identity based on one or more of their biological or behavioural characteristics.
The first biometric technology was introduced in 1974, designed by Safran on behalf of the FBI. Since then, biometrics has been booming for several years, in the face of new threats and data and identity theft facilitated by the expansion of new technologies. France is a pioneer in this field on the international scene, with highly innovative and efficient companies.
Nevertheless, through its use of personal data, biometrics also remains a subject of mistrust, which considerably hinders its growth, particularly in countries such as France where individual freedoms have always been a fundamental issue.
