Findings from the Ponemon Institute 2004 Survey on the Public's Perception of Identity Management, sponsored by the International Association of Privacy Professionals and Electronic Data Systems Corp., support the use of biometrics for identity management. More than 70% of respondents said they could accept certain kinds of biometrics, such as a voice recognition or fingerprinting system. The No. 1 reason is convenience. More than 88% of respondents believe biometrics will make identification more convenient and accurate. Among those opposed to biometrics (11%), most appear concerned about secondary or alternative uses of this data.
