About the HUBs
biometric ID:HUB is one of three simultaneous conference HUBs at connect:ID.
biometric ID:HUB will focus in-depth on this highly-topical and fast-moving area, but, where relevant, will bring together audiences to discuss cross-over issues with mobile ID:HUB and secure ID:HUB. Conference attendees can follow one conference HUB or mix and match tracks across the HUBs.
About biometric ID:HUB
Biometric technologies are empowering countless organizations in their quest to authenticate customers, identify citizens, protect valuable assets, or enhance national security. Individual consumers, meanwhile, are becoming liberated through new biometric functionality now becoming standard on a wide range of mobile/smart devices.
From borders to banks, law enforcement toeducation - and many other applications beside - this conference will examine the new paradigm within which biometric technology now exists, where new solutions are offering capabilities almost unthinkable just a few years ago - and with them a number of potentially sensitive policy issues. Exponential improvements in technical capabilities, combined with an increasing societal willingness (with caveats) to embrace this technology, are leading to a future where biometrics - often in combination with a variety of other disruptive technologies - will make a transformative difference in the physical, mobile and digital domains.
The biometricID:HUB 2017 conference program will be available spring 2017
For information, the biometricID:HUB 2016 program is below:

Session Chairman’s Introduction
Identification, anonymity, and data integration in next generation traveller processing
- Efficient and secure airport travel requires a large amount of data about travellers and conveyances, both identity-based and anonymous;
- Security depends on convenient, cost effective, and unobtrusive identification technologies at appropriate points in the process flow;
- Efficiency depends on availability of anonymous data about volumes of travellers, transit times, and arrival timing of conveyances (planes in this case).
Global trends in modernizing air travel: How biometrics enhance security and facilitation
- The accurate identity information border authorities need to better assure immigration entry and exit processing also enables travelers, airlines and security personnel to create a less stressful, faster experience;
- Projects using biometrics as token throughout the border, security, baggage and boarding processes are being deployed in Asia;
- In the face of the escalating threat to world travel, biometric technologies integrated into air travel processes balance increased security and travel facilitation.

Mobile wallets and fraud: Leveraging strong authentication to protect consumer accounts
- As with any new form of financial technology, mobile wallets came under siege by fraudsters almost immediately after introduction;
- Financial institutions were unprepared for the attempts to circumvent their controls, contributing to unusually high losses and reputational damage;
- The use of mobile wallets is expected to exceed $50 billion by 2018, making them even more attractive fraud targets;
- By leveraging strong authentication technologies geared specifically for the mobile channel, wallet enrolment and use can be secured against these attacks – preventing fraud and preserving trust in this nascent financial technology.
