The author reflects on the public demand for increased security and access control to U.S. protection professionals. He argues that the reluctance of improvement is due to significant cost involved in securing systems and technologies like biometrics. He elaborates the possible problems that include, false accept rates which allows access to unauthorized person, false reject rates which denies access to authorize user and throughput which limits the manipulative time for the device.
