Abstract:     A method of validating production of a biometric attribute allegedly associated with a user comprises the following steps. A first signal is generated representing data associated with the biometric attribute allegedly received in association with the user. A second signal is also generated representing data associated with at least one feature detected in association with the production of the biometric attribute allegedly received from the user. Then, the first signal and the second signal are compared to determine a correlation level between the biometric attribute and the production feature, wherein the validation of the production of the biometric attribute depends on the correlation level. Accordingly, the invention serves to provide substantial assurance that the biometric attribute offered by the user has been physically generated by the user.

What is claimed is:     1. A method of validating production of a biometric attribute allegedly associated with a user, the method comprising the steps of:
  • generating a first signal representing data associated with the biometric attribute allegedly received in association with the user;
  • generating a second signal representing data associated with at least one feature detected in association with the production of the biometric attribute allegedly received from the user; and
  • comparing the first signal and the second signal to determine a correlation level between the biometric attribute and the production feature, wherein validation of the production of the biometric attribute depends on the correlation level.
