}
Ethical issues surrounding the actual and proposed use of biometric identifiers within the EU are identified. The paper starts by defining biometric technology and biometric identification. This is followed by some examples of biometric identifiers presently used in private applications across the world. These examples lead to consideration of some of the ethical problems likely to be encountered when public authorities start using biometrics in travel documents and databases. A brief… Expand
