The article discusses open biometric technology. There are various biometric technology which are aiming at border control, biometrically enables identity management solutions. In order to avoid any mismanagement during registrations and to work effectively, multiple biometric technologies must be utilized within the system. The multiple biometric technology would enable to track the required information for further detection of circumvention. The technology is so advanced that it can also help in tracking suspected terrorists masking themselves in the small towns.
