Regulation, risk awareness and technological advances are more and
more drawing identity search requirements into business, security
and data management processes. Following years of struggling with
computational techniques, the new linguistic identity matching
approach finally offers an appropriate way for such processes to
balance the risk of missing a personal match with the costs of
overmatching. The new paradigm for identity searches focuses on
understanding the influences that languages, writing systems and
cultural conventions have on person names.

We live in a society which is increasingly interconnected, in which communication between individuals is mostly mediated via some electronic platform, and transactions are often carried out remotely. In such a world, traditional notions of trust and confidence in the identity of those with whom we are interacting, taken for granted in the past, can be much less reliable. Biometrics - the scientific discipline of identifying individuals by means of the measurement of unique personal attributes - provides a reliable means of establishing or confirming an individual's identity. These attributes include facial appearance, fingerprints, iris patterning, the voice, the way we write, or even the way we walk. The new technologies of biometrics have a wide range of practical applications, from securing mobile phones and laptops to establishing identity in bank transactions, travel documents, and national identity cards. This Very Short Introduction considers the capabilities of biometrics-based identity checking, from first principles to the practicalities of using different types of identification data. Michael Fairhurst looks at the basic techniques in use today, ongoing developments in system design, and emerging technologies, all aimed at improving precision in identification, and providing solutions to an increasingly wide range of practical problems. Considering how they may continue to develop in the future, Fairhurst explores the benefits and limitations of these pervasive and powerful technologies, and how they can effectively support our increasingly interconnected society. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

This monograph is intended for the designers and would-be designers of secure and efficient wireless communication systems under intentional interference. Along with the widespread of wireless devices, especially reconfigurable software defined radios, jamming has become a serious threat to civilian communications. In this book, going beyond traditional communication system design that mainly focuses on accurate information transmission under benign environments, we aim to enhance the physical layer security of communication systems by integrating modern cryptographic techniques into transceiver design, so as to achieve secure high-speed transmission under hostile interference with high reliability and efficiency. We revisit existing jamming patterns, and introduce new jamming patterns. We analyze the weaknesses of existing anti-jamming techniques. We present innovative and feasible anti-jamming techniques, which can strengthen the inherent security of the 3G, 4G and the upcoming 5G systems with minimal and inexpensive changes to the existing CDMA, frequency hopping and OFDM schemes. We also provide benchmarks for system performance evaluation under various jamming scenarios through capacity analysis. This book includes design principles, in-depth theoretical analysis and practical design examples, and will be of interest to academic researchers as well as professionals in industry.
