Biometric Authentication (BIO, BIO-A)


  A form of authentication in which authenticity is established by biometric verification of a new biometric sample from a cardholder to a biometric data record read from the cardholder’s activated PIV Card. In BIO, the biometric sample may be captured from the cardholder in isolation, while in BIO-A, an attendant must oversee the process of biometric capture.
