Source: Science Publications
This paper looks at one of the evolving crimes of the digital age; identity theft. It argues and explains that if three key technologies were implemented together namely biometrics, smart cards, and PKI, then they can deliver a robust and trusted identification and authentication infrastructure. The paper concludes that such infrastructure may provide the foundation for e-government and ecommerce initiatives as it addresses the need for strong user authentication of virtual identities.
