    AUTHORS: Eugen Harinda, Etienne Ntagwirumugara

    ABSTRACT: Biometric authentication systems are believed to be effective compared to traditional authentication systems. The introduction of biometrics into smart cards is said to result into biometric-based smart ID card with enhanced security. This paper discusses the biometric-based smart ID card with a particular emphasis on security and privacy implications in Rwanda universities environment. It highlights the security and implementation issues. The analysis shows that despite the necessity to implement biometric technology, absence of legal and regulatory requirements becomes a challenge to implementation of the proposed biometric solution. The paper is intended to engage a broad audience from Rwanda universities planning to introduce the biometric-based smart ID cards to verify students and staff for authentication purpose.
