BIOMETRIC DATA VULNERABILITIES: PRIVACY IMPLICATIONS

Alžběta Krausová, Hananel Hazan, Ján Matejka

Abstract


Biometric data are typically used for the purposes of unique identification of a person. However, recent research suggests that biometric data gathered for the purpose of identification can be analysed for extraction of additional information. This augments indicative value of biometric data. This paper illustrates the range of augmented indicative values of the data as well as identifies crucial factors that contribute to increased vulnerability of data subjects.
