Now that "the little LAN that could" was connected to the Internet, an intruder no longer needed to breach the physical security of the company; he/she could carry out all attacks from the comfort of home. Passwords in the best of times are weak and, in general, easy to guess. With an enterprise connected to the Internet, the entire computing effort of many connected computers can be used to guess a password with brute force. In brute-forcing a password, every possible password combination is tried.

Imagine having the ability to take a physical trait, quantify it, and then use it as proof of who you are. The excitement I feel about this subject is the same as how I felt when I got my first computer. Here is the latest in technology, and it's mine to explore. It is not often that one is presented with an opportunity to work and research a subject that both excites and has practical applications. The promise of biometrics has never been greater. With the proliferation of passwords and the need to find a better and stronger factor of authentication, biometrics offer a solution.
