Biometrics promise the ability to automatically
identify individuals from reasonably easy to measure
and hard to falsify characteristics. They are
increasingly being investigated for use in large scale
identification applications in the context of increased
national security awareness. This paper addresses
some of the security and privacy implications of
biometric storage. Biometric systems record a sample
image, and calculate a template: a compact digital
representation of the essential features of the image.
To compare the individuals represented by two
images, the corresponding templates are compared,
