Perspectives on Identity, Identity Protection and Biometrics among Young People

Image

In early 2009 the UK Biometrics Institute and the University of Kent were commissioned by the Identity and Passport Service (IPS) to investigate a number of issues relating to the views of young people (typically in the 16-25 age group) on the subject of personal identity, vulnerabilities to identity fraud and, especially, their perception of biometrics technologies as a means of determining or authenticating personal identity and other related important issues. They were also commissioned to provide some specific opportunities to engage with a range of actors and stakeholders in the identity field (including the target “consumers” themselves) for discussion, advice, information and guidance.

The resulting report Perspectives on Identity, Identity Protection and Biometrics among Young People was published in February 2010.
