    Abstract:

    Cybercrime is a recognized interna-tional problem that is a major security issue for anyone who manages, owns, uses or accesses computer systems linked to the internet. The yearly cy-bercrime cost in the United States is over 300 million and rising. The cru-cial security mission is access control to systems to keep out identity thieves. However, with the rise of identity theft it has become more difficult to prevent unauthorized access to information resources. Methods of positively veri-fying and authenticating people may mitigate the current identity theft crisis.
    The development of information tech-nology in online transaction model provides efficiency for account holder to do online transaction. In this situa-tion, technology plays important role in providing consumer identity protec-tion. However, the cases of online transaction scams have been on the increase. Perpetrators access consum-er’s account and do online transaction illegally. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing types of cybercrime. Using biometric such as fingerprint technology is very important to protect consumer identity during online trans-action. This paper focuses on custom-er identity theft protection in online transaction through biometric technol-ogy application. The result shows that the biometrics technology can be ap-plied in the cyberspace to authenticate genuine customers only.
