Abstract: Biometrics refers to the automatic identification of a living person based on physiological or behavioural characteristics for authentication purpose. Among the existing biometric technologies are the face recognisation, fingerprint recognition, finger-geometry, hand geometry, iris recognition, vein recognition, voice recognition and signature recognition, Biometric method requires the physical presence of the person to be identified. This emphasizes its preference over the traditional method of identifying what you have such as, the use of password, a smartcard etc. Also, it potentially prevents unauthorized admittance to access control systems or fraudulent use of ATMs, Time Attendance Systems, cellular phones, smart cards, desktop PCs, Workstations, vehicles and computer networks. Biometric recognition systems offer greater security and convenience than traditional methods of personal recognition.
Keywords: This emphasizes its preference over the traditional method of identifying what you have such as, the use of password, a smartcard etc.
