Biometrics Solutions: The term biometrics refers to technologies that measure and analyzes human physiological or behavioral characteristics for authentication or identification purposes. For such a factor to be suitable, it must meet the following criteria:
• Fingerprint recognition
• Iris recognition
• Face recognition
• Voice recognition
• Hand geometry recognition
• Retina recognition
A few examples where using biometrics might have advantages:
• Time attendance systems
• Access control to computer systems or portable media
• Physical access control
• Loyalty card or other customer systems
Bio-metrics refers to metrics related to human characteristics. Bio-metrics authentication (or realistic authentication is used in computer science as a form of identification and access control. It is also used to identify individuals in groups that are under surveillance.
Bio-metric identifiers are the distinctive, measurable characteristics used to label and describe individuals. Bio-metric identifiers are often categorized as physiological versus behavioral characteristics. Physiological characteristics are related to the shape of the body. Examples include, but are not limited to fingerprint, palm veins, face recognition, DNA, palm print, hand geometry, iris recognition, retina and odor/scent. Behavioral characteristics are related to the pattern of behavior of a person, including but not limited to typing rhythm, gait, and voice. Some researchers have coined the term behaviorists to describe the latter class of biometrics.
