Biometric Security I’m fairly new to the security sector, so I’ve been brushing up on my security factoids. In this post, I talk about some of the most interesting chip-level security systems that I’ve found. I’d love to hear about any neat security measures that you’ve dealt with! Here’s an excerpt:

There’s no doubt that we are living in troubled times. Every day, there seems to be another news report explaining the most recent security breach, newest terrorist threat, or next major international crisis. At the heart of many of these problems lies security. “Security” is a pretty broad term, and can refer to a lot of different issues and circumstances. For now, let’s focus on access and system-level security. This refers to the steps that are taken to ensure that only people with the proper credentials are given access to specific data or resources. When access security is breached, it means that an unauthorized person has gained access to data or resources that they should not have. This might then be traded, sold, or otherwise utilized to incite criminal activities or other forms of malfeasance. In the ideal scenario, we want to prevent these security breaches on the physical and technological levels.
