ABSTRACT
The key aspect of this research paper is to establish and appraise the current access keycard and password system used in the University of Botswana (UB) against the alternative biometric access control system. Biometrics attributes to the automated recognition of a person based upon their physiological and behavioral characteristics. The experts around the world agree on the concept of biometrics and the types of personalized attributes it revolves around. Using biometrics makes it possible to substantiate a person’s identity based on their physical attributes rather than their possessions (e.g.ID keycard) or what they know (e.g. passwords). Biometric Access Control (ABAC) system is expected to certify and authenticate membership status of the user by employing biometric signals without prior knowledge of their true identity. This might help curb possibilities of security access breaches by hackers and imposters which can sabotage the integral purity of the information within the University of Botswana database servers. Hypothetically speaking a solution could be achieved through the use of biometrical access control systems as this paper mainly focuses on access control.
