Biometric Fingerprint Access System for Critical Infrastructure Protection

Institution

Western Kentucky University

Abstract

Securing our resources, both critical infrastructure and personnel, is a vital part of Kentucky Homeland Security. With this in mind, Western Kentucky University’s Applied Physics Institute, in conjunction with Electronic Warfare Associates of Bowling Green, KY, has developed a biometric fingerprint access system. The system is unique in that it is client/server based and each person’s biometric will be replicated to each entrance system using a distributed database system. Security experts can monitor access remotely through this flexible database. The system registers authorized personnel, provides the ability to specify which entrances are to be authorized, specifies times of authorized entrance, provides temporary access, and provides the audit trail report of the use of each entrance. This system can serve numerous types of infrastructures including shopping malls, schools, factories, and other public facilities. The poster will describe the biometric fingerprint access system. Details of the applications scenarios by State and Local governments, local law enforcement, as well as educational institutions will be discussed.
