Abstract: It is self-evident that the game changer of our modern world – the “internet” has endowed the twenty first century man with enormous potentials and possibilities. Ranging from enhanced capabilities in business (e-business), governance (e-governance), politics, social interaction and information exchange. The internet has indeed shrinked the global distance that once posed a great barrier and limited man’s endeavours in the preceding centuries. Amidst the great advantages derivable from the use of internet for various purposes lie inherent security threats. To a large extent, these security hindrances have been addressed in advanced nations of the world, as a result, internet phenomenon has pervaded all aspects of the advanced nations economy. This is evident in different electronic platforms that are available for the delivery of various products and services. On the contrary, the application of internet in various aspects of commerce has been hampered by the challenges of security limitations due to identity issues in the developing/emerging economies. Due to these security threats, business owners and the general public in less-developed world demonstrate great sense of apathy in the use of available electronic options for the purpose of commerce. Against the backdrop of the above, and the poor infrastructure basis of the developing nations, this research paper analyses and proposes the implementation of multimodal biometric technology frameworks with novel server architecture to tackle the security threats inherent with e-commerce in the developing world.
