This book deals with new methods for fingerprint verification. With the advent of public key infrastructure and e-commerce, the demand for reliable user authentication has increased by leaps and bounds. Authentication via PIN and passwords or tokens may become no longer suitable to meet the security constraints. Biometrics is the science of measuring physical or behavioral characteristics, that are suitable for the identification of individuals. Fingerprint verification is one of the most reliable and well-understood biometrics measures. Physical characteristics cannot be stolen, forgotten, spied out or transferred. They are tied to the user and permit the implementation of high security systems, that are convenient to use. The design of professional security systems enhanced with biometric user authentication implies that the verifying device is a tamper-proof embedded system. Therefore, it is valuable to perform the verification process in a secure manner with microcontrollers as used in common low-cost security tokens, like smart cards. Several concepts for implementing fingerprint verification within small microcontrollers were developed, enhanced and realized throughout this work. The memory constraints and limited processing power of smart cards and compatible tokens were overcome as reported by tests with databases of fingerprints. The results and the strengths as well as limitations of every method yield conclusions on how to implement secure biometric user authentication with security tokens. The transaction schemes for secure user authentication with biometrics show a major improvement in system security and privacy.This book shows, that fingerprint verification is possible with standard microcontrollers in today's security tokens. Several original algorithms were developed, implemented and tested against each other. Furthermore, the standard algorithms for fingerprint verification were enhanced with some new aspects to improve the overall matching accuracy. Particularly, a flexible multi-resolution level fingerprint matching algorithm was derived and implemented. It combines the verification of minutiae, ridge counts and pores while keeping the template storage requirements in a range that is appropriate for embedded tokens.

Under the Strain of Color: Harlem's Lafargue Cl...

In Under the Strain of Color, Gabriel N. Mendes recaptures the history of a largely forgotten New York City institution that embodied new ways of thinking about mental health, race, and the substance of citizenship. Harlem's Lafargue Mental Hygiene Clinic was founded in 1946 as both a practical response to the need for low-cost psychotherapy and counseling for black residents (many of whom were recent migrants to the city) and a model for nationwide efforts to address racial disparities in the provision of mental health care in the United States.The result of a collaboration among the psychiatrist and social critic Dr. Fredric Wertham, the writer Richard Wright, and the clergyman Rev. Shelton Hale Bishop, the clinic emerged in the context of a widespread American concern with the mental health of its citizens. It proved to be more radical than any other contemporary therapeutic institution, however, by incorporating the psychosocial significance of antiblack racism and class oppression into its approach to diagnosis and therapy.Mendes shows the Lafargue Clinic to have been simultaneously a scientific and political gambit, challenging both a racist mental health care system and supposedly color-blind psychiatrists who failed to consider the consequences of oppression in their assessment and treatment of African American patients. Employing the methods of oral history, archival research, textual analysis, and critical race philosophy, Under the Strain of Color contributes to a growing body of scholarship that highlights the interlocking relationships among biomedicine, institutional racism, structural violence, and community health activism.

Streetcars GCGBPare as dead as sailing ships,GC said Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia in a radio speech, two days before Madison AvenueGCOs streetcars yielded to buses. LaGuardia was determined to eliminate streetcars, demolish pre-1900 elevated lines, and unify the subway system, a goal that became reality in 1940 when the separate IRT, BMT, and IND became one giant system under full public control.In this fascinating micro-history of New YorkGs transit system, Andrew Sparberg examines twenty specific events between 1940 and 1968, book ended by subway unification and the MTAGs creation. From a Nickel to a Token depicts a potpourri of well-remembered, partially forgotten, and totally obscure happenings drawn from the historical tapestry of New York mass transit. Sparberg deftly captures five boroughs of grit, chaos, and emotion grappling with a massive and unwieldy transit system.During these decades, the system morphed into todayGs familiar network. The public sector absorbed most private surface lines operating within the five boroughs, and buses completely replaced streetcars. Elevated lines were demolished, replaced by subways or, along ManhattanGs Third Avenue, not at all. Beyond the unification of the IND, IRT, and BMT, strategic track connections were built between lines to allow a more flexible and unified operation. The oldest subway routes received much needed rehabilitation. Thousands of new subway cars and buses were purchased. The sacred nickel fare barrier was broken, and by 1968 a ride cost twenty cents.From LaGuardia to Lindsay, mayors devoted much energy to solving transit problems, keeping fares low, and appeasing voters, fellow elected officials, transit management, and labor leaders. Simultaneously, American society was experiencing tumultuous times, manifested by labor disputes, economic pressures, and civil rights protests.Featuring many photos never before published, From a Nickel to a Token is a historical trip back in time to a multitude of important events.
