Transcript of Project 1.3.3: Who Are You?

- Utilize iris scans to identify babies

- Employ DNA profiling to properly match babies with parents

- Apply fingerprinting to include in records for authenticity
Eye See You!
Iris Scanning
The Science Behind It:

- Uses standard video cameras
- Captures a photograph of your eye

- Eye is illuminated by special light-emitting diodes surrounding the camera

- Examines the unique patterns of ridges on color portion of eye

- Colored part of the eye contains 240 unique points of reference for identifying a person

- The eye pattern is converted into a code and cannot be reversed
Biometry Babe
Accuracy of the Iris Scan
- NO LASERS, bright lights, or physical contact (SAFE!)

- More detailed than other eye scans, such as the retinal scan

- Can be used on people with disorders
- Blind
- Diabetics
- Victims of glaucoma
- People with retinal degenerative disorders

- 90-99% accurate (most accurate of biometrics)
Can You Beat It?
- No picture is saved, so no one can gain access to your scan (not invasive)

- The code that matches your eye pattern cannot be reversed

- Lighting, angle of head, ethnicity, and eye color can alter the results (it is harder to determine where the pupil ends and where the iris starts with darker eyes)

- Colored contact lenses, drugs (dilates eyes), and a photo of another person's eye
Project 1.3.3: Who Are You?

The Game Plan
(before birth)
- Ask for a fingerprint scanning of both parents on their 1st visit to put in records immediately

- Take DNA samples of parents for their records

- Whenever the soon-to-be mother comes for her check up and/or an ultrasound, take another DNA and fingerprint scan to keep the records authentic and updated

- When physical characteristics begin to appear in the ultrasound, add these to the records to confirm matching (such as gender)

The Game Plan
(after birth)
- When the baby is born, scan his/her fingerprint and attach to records

- As soon as the baby can open eyes, take a iris scan and add to records

- Take a sample of the baby's DNA and complete a DNA profile of the family

- These steps will ensure that every baby will be delivered to the genuine parent(s) and all mix-ups or abductions will be eliminated
A hospital interested in a better way to link new mothers and fathers with their newborn babies.
Mission Statement
Our mission is to help hospitals install a safer and more accurate procedure for matching mothers and fathers with their newborn babies using modern biometrics.

DNA Profiling
The Science Behind It:

- obtain DNA through blood, saliva, hair, or skin

- use length and protein sequences of different sections and generate a DNA profile

- use the DNA profiles to compare babies to parents as necessary

- odds of 2 people having the same DNA is 6 billion to 1 (except identical twins)

- humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes

- one member of each pair comes form the mother and the other comes from the father

- humans share 99.9% of DNA; the last 0.01% is what makes each person unique
- Can easily obtain a piece of your DNA (like a strand of hair)

- You can't replace your DNA
- Used to gain access to confidential information and restricted areas

- 95-98% accurate

- Fingerprints are analyzed by the ridges and patterns (whorl, loop, and arch)
- Most commonly used today

- Very accurate

- Don't have to remember a password

- Not everyone's fingerprint is in the system

- Rubber, cement, silicon gel, tape, and gelatin (Gummi finger) are all ways you could beat the fingerprint scan

- Some may go to desperate extremes and cut off someone's finger
