This book is a rare and exciting find in the US Library of Congress. It is one of the very earliest analyses of automated personal identity technology and was written at the birth of what we now know as the modern biometrics industry. Despite being written in 1974, the authors saw with impressive clarity many of the issues that remain today as some of the most difficult problems to solve.
Reading the terminology, the comparative analysis of competing technologies and seeing the companies that were involved, is fascinating. This book is a must read for anyone interested in the biometrics industry today.
