Body parts battle?

Yes, among the highlights of TechSec this year will be a session we've dubbed "Battle of the body parts," and not just because it's a catchy title. We're going to have a little competition at TechSec.

I've been hearing from more and more integrators that biometrics are coming of age. They're more affordable and they're more reliable, you've told me.

So, we decided to take a look at which biometric technique works best and where the promise still exceed the reality.

SecuritySpecifiers' Ray Coulombe will lead the session and he's gathered experts on four biometric technologies—facial recognition, eye scan, fingerprint, and hand geometry—to speak. Those representatives will state their cases. These will not be manufacturer' pitches. Those are not allowed at TechSec and would be booed off the stage. Rather they'll be biometrics experts talking about specific technology fundamentals (rather than their companies or products), advantages and best application areas.

To help figure out who wins the battle we'll have a panel of judges drawn from our "20 under 40" award winners.

Face, eye, finger, hand ... Come to Delray Beach, Fla. Feb. 2-3 to find out which body part is victorious in 2016. Here's a link to the program.

And, stay tuned for the announcement of our super cool keynote speaker early next week.
