BIOMETRIC PRIVATE KEY INFRASTRUCTURE: link: http://www.wipo.int/pctdb/en/wo.jsp?KEY=040676.040422 In accordance with an aspect of providing trust and authentication for network communications and transactions, a network infrastructure is provided that employs BIOMETRIC Private Keys (BioPKI). Generally BioPKI is a unique combination of two software solutions that validate electronic user authentication: a state-of-the-art biometric signature system and a digital signature for data integrity. The combined solution allows network businesses and merchants such as financial institutions to ensure that user authentication is conducted in a trusted, secure fashion within standard network environments. In one example implementation, a biometric signature augments standard digital signatures by adding an automated, non-reputable user authentication capability to the existing digital signature process. In contrast to simple verification in a pure biometric-based system or digital signature/certificate environment, BioPKI uses a combination of biometric technology to access private keys in order to create digital signatures based on biometric authentication and industry-standard PKI technologies...
