Multimodal Biometrics Uses in Person Identification and Verification
Biometric Systems based solely on a single modality will most often not meet desired performance requirements for large user population applications due to size and differentiation. This becomes evident with increases in noisy data and the presence of more than a few statistical outliers thereby increasing error rates to an unacceptable range. This presentation discusses the possibilities available with the use of multiple biometric modalities to answer the questions of Identification "Who am I?" and verification "Am I who I claim to be?"

Personal Electronic Devices; iPODS, PDAs and Cell Phones a Forensics Discussion
iPods, PDAs, and cell phones continue to merge in form, fit, and functionality and now include data acquisition (cameras, keyboards, usb ports, etc), data aggregation, and storage (some up to 80 gigabytes), and communications capabilities (IR, Bluetooth, wireless internet access, and cellular telephone). This presentation provides insights into the features and capabilities of such systems, their possible uses in unethical and possibly unlawful activities, and as discussion of the concepts of forensic analyses and approaches useful in combating such uses.
