Abstract :

The term "biometrics" is derived from the Greek words bio means life and metric means to measure. That means Biometrics is referred to the identification of a person based on his/her behavioral or physiological characteristics. This method of identification is preferred over traditional methods involving passwords and PIN numbers for its accuracy and case sensitiveness. A biometric system is essentially a pattern recognition system which makes a personal identification by determining the authenticity of a specific physiological or behavioral characteristic possessed by the user. An important issue in designing a practical system is to determine how an individual is identified. Depending on the context, a biometric system can be either a verification (authentication) system or an identification system. Verification involves confirming or denying a person's claimed identity while in identification, person must establish his/her identity. Biometric systems are divided on the basis of the authentication medium used. They are broadly divided as identifications of Hand Geometry, Vein Pattern, Voice Pattern, DNA, Signature Dynamics, Finger Prints, Iris Pattern and Face Detection. These methods are used on the basis of the scope of the testing medium, the accuracy required and speed required.
