Nowdays, security and privacy is a major concern of our data that’s why we can use biometric techniques for identification and recognition of users for creating secure system. Biometrics refers to the identification of humans by their characteristics or traits. A biometric system is a technological system that uses information about a person (or other biological organism) to identify that person .A Biometrics system is a pattern recognition system that uses various patterns like iris patterns, retina patterns and biological traits like fingerprints, facial geometry, voice recognition and hand recognition etc. This paper deals with various biometric systems by defining their advantages and disadvantages. Definition:-Biometrics refers to the…show more content…
The term Biometrics is considered to be highly important in computer security world By using biometric techniques it is possible to establish one’s identity .Biometric system can me either an 'identification' system or a 'verification' system . The person to be identified is required to be physically present at the time-of-identification. The idea is to use the special characteristics of a person to identify him. There are two types of biometrics: behavioral and physical. Behavioral biometrics are generally used for verification while physical biometrics can be used for identification or…show more content…
Using the human face as a key to security, biometric face recognition technology has received significant attention in the past several years due to its potential for a wide variety of applications in both law enforcement and non-law enforcement. As compared with other biometrics systems using fingerprint /palm print and iris, face recognition has distinct advantages because of its non-contact process. Face images can be captured from a distance without touching the person being identified. The identification does not require interacting with the person. Face recognition involves an evaluation of facial features. It identifies and verifies an individual from an digital
