"You can't change your fingerprint and you can't change your face"

"You can't change your fingerprint and you can't change your face".

That is the statement made by Democratic Senator Al Franken of Minnesota, chairman of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law. Read this article to see what the FBI is doing, and how the technology that FaceKey employs in its facial recognition scanning device (FKFP) is being deployed. FaceKey's President, Yevgeny Levitov, stated that the facial recognition systems described in this article are: "exactly the right approach to the problem. Infrared is the most cost effective and accurate way to capture the data the FBI is looking for. Combining traditional facial recognition with infrared technologies will reduce false positives and have highest accuracy at lowest cost".

According to Stanley Derr, President of SED Technology, LLC, infrared facial recognition technology is considered very reliable because factors such as environmental conditions or a subject’s clogged arteries or spider vein removal won’t change that pattern. Cosmetic surgery or scarring, “may shrink your blood vessels, but it does not do away with them,” he said. “To really change the major blood vessels in your face you have to go deep enough that you have a real chance of killing the person.”

On a similar note, FaceKey is charting new territory with its FaceKey Biometric API that is due to be released this fall. It will allow small business, industry and government to use FaceKey's patented algorithms, and build custom applications around their highly accurate infrared facial recognition technology.
