SECURITY VIOLATION MANAGEMENT FOR ATMS TRANSACTIONS IN THE BANKING SECTORS USING BIOMETRIC FINGERPRINTS
Publication Date : 31/01/2017
Fingerprints, an impression left by the friction ridges of a human finger are an important part of the studies of forensic science. They are deposited and left everywhere on suitable surfaces (such as: glasses, metals, and/or polished surfaces) by some natural secretions of sweat from the eecrine glands that are present in the epidermal ridges. Involving or adopting the use of fingerprints into the banking sector for the security of ATMs and customers would go a longer way in playing a critical role in preventing attacks on the banks and customers. This can equally lead to check-mating the loop-holes and vulnerabilities that are linked to the bank-ATM frauds. Banks must meet and employ certain standards so as to ensure a safer banking environment. This paper focuses on the flaws and the increasing waves of criminal activities taking hold on ATMs (Automated Teller Machines) where quick cash in transit is the primary target on the customers. A biometric means as the measure of enhancing this security has emerged from the discourse.
