Biometric technologies are the science of detecting and recognising human characteristics using technologies that measure and analyse individual biological data. The way we are genetically composed, creates identifiable traits that can uniquely represent us as individuals. Just as DNA can be used to identify individuals except for identical twins, some biometric traits such as fingerprints and iris prints are distinctive even among identical twins.

Have you ever experienced software systems failing? Websites crash, calendar not synchronising, or even a power blackout. Of course you have! But did you know that many of these errors are the result of communication errors either within a system or between systems? Depending on the system, the impact of software failures can be huge, even resulting in massive economic damage or loss of lives. Software, and in particular the communication between software-intensive systems, is very complex and very difficult to get right. However, we _need_ dependability in the systems we use, directly or indirectly, to support us in our everyday lives.
