Abstract: Widespread use of e-services using information systems and electronic devices requires ensuring a high level of their protection. One of the important mechanisms of the security system is users’ identity control. Methods known and used for years are no longer enough protection and also are considered to be burdensome. The advantage of biometric methods used for authentication and identification of individuals is the convenience of using them, with a guarantee of high efficiency. In the recent times, biometrics have been extensively developed. The multitude of available authentication methods allow them to be used for a variety of purposes. The greatest interest is aroused by the possibility of using them for automatic identification of people. The large-scale use of these techniques, however, raises many objections. The aim of the article is to show new areas of application of biometric techniques and related problems.
