102 of biometric enrolment

We introduced biometric enrolment in the previously edition, we shall now examine specific scenarios.

The environment where a biometric enrolment activity takes place is known as an enrolment center, and it can be as elaborate as a dedicated office, or as simple as a mobile van or a temporary location specifically designated for this purpose.

Temporary enrolment centres can be set up in schools, churches, mosques, markets, sports arenas, airports, train stations, shopping malls, or other convenient locations suitable for such makeshift arrangement. Factors that determine the location of a temporary biometric enrolment centre include safety of equipment and personnel, access to power supply, space for enrollee queue, etc. The type of biometric system adopted also determines whether it is suitable for outdoor use or strictly indoor operations.

Fingerprint technology is a widely adopted biometric system used in a number of enrolment cases. For effective fingerprint enrollment, clean scanners are essential to minimize failures and guarantee hygiene. Although there may be difficulties with easy collection of fingerprint samples from infants, it is generally accepted for most identity management schemes for verification because of the distinctiveness of human finger patterns from person to person. For this reason, fingerprints can be used in both single biometric verification systems and multi-modal systems where they are simultaneously used together with other biometrics such as facial or iris patterns. Multi-modal biometric implementations guarantee
