Biometric Border Control:

Multibiometric reference data in sufficient quality is used within Europe and beyond to verify the identity of persons at borders against the claimed identity within biometric (travel) documents and/or identifying criminals in certain real life scenarios. Different application scenarios demand for high reliability of verification and identification. Thus multimodal high speed biometric systems are needed. Within the workshop the impacts and possible scenarios for border control is addressed to identify current possibilities, drawbacks, and future development of biometric systems in border control processes. In this con-text the state-of-the-art research in 2D and 3D face recognition approaches is discussed.

Federated Identity Management:

While electronic identity theft becomes an increasingly pressing problem, which according to the Identity Theft Resource Center causes an annual damage up to $55 Billion for businesses and consumers, there are many national and domain specific approaches for more secure identification and authentication using electronic identity cards for example. These approaches however do not yet seem to be applicable in cross domain business processes and hence may fail to solve the electronic identity theft problem in a global perspective. Therefore the workshop discusses methods and systems for secure identity management with a special emphasis on aspects arising in cross domain scenarios.
