WarDriving

Back in the old days, before everyone had broadband internet access, modems were the standard way of accessing other computers and consequently other networks. In order to connect to another computer, you first had to know what phone number to call. People would often run programs that would call huge amounts of phone numbers in an attempt to find computers that they could connect to. Often times people would find dial-in phone numbers to corporate, school, or other networks that they probably shouldn't have access to.
With the advent of the Internet, a similar activity has been born. Scanning. On the Internet, an IP address is analogous to a phone number. People often scan through large amounts of IP addresses looking for computers that are running certain types of servers.
The new wireless age has introduced a new brute force attack. Originally, WarDriving was when crackers drove around in a car equipped with wireless gear looking for unsecured wireless networks, to gain illicit access. Over time, the term has evolved to include harmless types like us simply checking on the RF environment.

Social Engineering

Term used among crackers and samurai for cracking techniques that rely on weaknesses in wetware rather than software; the aim is to trick people into revealing passwords or other information that compromises a target system's security. Classic scams include phoning up a mark who has the required information and posing as a field service tech or a fellow employee with an urgent access problem.

Biometrics

Biometrics is the science and technology of measuring and statistically analyzing biological data. In information technology, biometrics usually refers to technologies for measuring and analyzing human body characteristics such as fingerprints, eye retinas and irises, voice patterns, facial patterns, and hand measurements, especially for authentication purposes. Often seen in science-fiction action adventure movies, face pattern matchers and body scanners seem about to emerge as replacements for computer passwords. Fingerprint and other biometric devices consist of a reader or scanning device, software that converts the scanned information into digital form, and wherever the data is to be analyzed, a database that stores the biometric data for comparison with previous records. When converting the biometric input, the software identifies specific points of data as match points. The match points are processed using an algorithm into a value that can be compared with biometric data scanned when a user tries to gain access.

Imagis Technologies Biometrics face recognition and law enforcement software. Imagis Technologies (OTCBB:IGSTF; TSX:NAB; Germany:IGY) is a leading developer of biometric systems using advanced facial and image recognition technology. This includes biometric security solutions and facial identification solutions for such industry sectors as law enforcement, airports, customs & immigration, driver's licenses & passports, and other government agencies.
