Adoption of Fingerprinting as an Automated Access Control Technique in University Hostels
Biometrics is defined as a distinguishable physiological or behavioural attribute that can be used to verify or authenticate an individual's identity. Fingerprint is a type of biometric trait. Authentication/verification and/or access control can be managed with the use of biometric-based systems. The problems encountered with these systems include among others user perception of the systems which is the aim of this paper. The users' perception in this paper is examined using a quantitative approach by designing a questionnaire as the data collection instrument based on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM).
