School biometric system raises concerns over student exposure

CampusIDNews Staff   ||   Jan 14, 2010  ||   ,

The Hull Trinity House School in Yorkshire, UK has become the first Hull school in its area to utilize a biometric system in replacement of school lunch payment programs, according to a Yorkshire Post article.

As has been common at other schools where such a system has been implemented, the new system is raising concerns among community leaders over whether or not biometrics in schools exposes student’s personal data to hackers and other cyber criminals.

In response to such worries, however, the schools headmaster, Andy Twaits, has pointed towards the system’s use of numeric references to points on a student’s finger, rather than storing a fingerprint image, and, therefore, renders stolen data basically unusable.

Further, Twaits has reminded the nay-sayers that the system has received 99% support from the students’ parents and usage of the system is not required of students.
