How it works

Biometric-based authenticatio
Biometrics systems How it works Biometric systems convert data derived from behavioral or physiological characteristics into templates, which are used for subsequent matching. This is a multi-stage process whose stages are described below. Enrollment – The process whereby a user’s initial biometric sample or samples...

Introduction Biometrics are automated methods of recognizing a person based on a physiological or behavioural characteristic. Among the features measured are; face, fingerprints, hand geometry, handwriting, iris, retinal, vein, and voice. Biometric technologies are becoming the foundation of an extensive array of highly secure identification...

Verification vs Identification

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....

hand geometry

Hand Geometry   This biometric approach uses the geometric form of the hand for confirming an individual’s identity. Because human hands are not unique, specific features must be combined to assure dynamic verification. Some hand-scan devices measure just two fingers, others measure the entire hand....
