Telebiometrics the science of measuring life carried out between two remote points, performed or operating through electronic transmission. A historic effort to remotely quantify biological entities (wetware), and transmit encrypted metrics and hierarchies over an open network. Applications include: e-Health, Telemedicine, security, animal monitoring, environmental monitoring, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) identification and authentication. This global security effort was first initiated by the United Nations Standards body, the ITU (International Telecommunications Union) which is a multinational coalition effort to measure and protect life via security and privacy.
Telebiometrics gained importance over the past decade, when identification and authentication was made a central issue in anti-terrorism system requirements. In 2013, Apple released the iPhone 5, the first telebiometric enabled phone. Since then, the scope has expanded to include all biological monitoring human or non-human including wearables for e-Health. As each person contains unique biological features and habits, information obtained from the body should be protected making it difficult to steal or replicate. Telebiometric enable systems offer reliable and secure biological measurements.
Telebiometric Standards are currently being defined by the ITU-T Study Group 17.

Telebiometrics was initially conceived as the application of biometrics for telecommunication and of telecommunications to remote biometric sensing. It was initially standardized in 2004 by ITU in ITU-T/Recommendation X.1081: The Telebiometric Multimodal Model. This was followed by IEC 80000-14, Telebiometrics related to physiology, published in 2007 as a part of the ISO and IEC 80000 harmonized series and ITU-T Recommendation X.1082.
