Industry Veteran Tom Buss Speaks at Advanced Biometrics Emerging Trends and Future Applications Conference

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- Tom Buss, business development executive and strategic advisor for Integrated Biometrics, recently spoke on the topic of public safety and military multibiometric identification tools at the Advanced Biometrics Emerging Trends and Future Applications Conference in Washington, D.C. The industry veteran shared insights on new certified fingerprint technology now available in the marketplace, giving examples of adoption and use cases discussed and reviewed.

“The emerging trend in Biometric Identification (and enrollment) devices is to do as much as possible in the field. With LES (Light Emitting Sensor) fingerprint technology, the future is now in terms of high-performing, lightweight fingerprint scanning technology applications for mobile devices” Buss said, adding, “The proof of any new emerging technology is how well it’s being adopted.”

In his February 12 presentation, he discussed previous barriers to mobile certified enrollment and ID devices; detailed the revolutionary smaller, thinner and lighter technologies for certified fingerprint capture technology impacting the marketplace; and gave numerous examples of new platforms that leverage the size and weight advantages of these new technologies.

Integrated Biometrics is seeing increasing use of its FBI-compliant LES fingerprint scanners in border control, law enforcement and national ID efforts, allowing field agents to create an enrollment of sufficient quality to populate a database from a handheld device, Buss explained.

The Conference addressed subjects such as the concept of “super-identity” in physical and cyber spaces using retina scanning, iris structure, hand geometry, vein structure, voice, personal touch and keystroke recognition in the context of overcoming data security obstacles presented by traditional means and the emergence of new biometric trends.

Buss joined conference speakers from government organizations, universities, and industry leaders such as the U.S. Department of Justice, IBM, Experian, Carnegie Mellon University, and Xerox, among others. His experience includes a 12-year career at Crossmatch, where he helped guide the company in both the Livescan and hand held device markets and now directs Integrated Biometrics in the deployment of their fingerprint capture technologies into new products for integrators worldwide.  

Integrated Biometrics provides enrollment and verification fingerprint sensors to hardware integrators, software and database providers, and contractors serving government agencies and commercial markets worldwide to address issues related to homeland security, border patrol, law enforcement, background checks, military and defense, social services, national ID programs and elections.
