Pros And Cons Of Biometrics

Abstract: Biometrics is the science and technology of measuring and analyzing biological data. In information technology, biometrics refers to technologies that measure and analyze human body characteristics, such as DNA, fingerprints, eye retinas and irises, voice patterns, facial patterns and hand measurements, for authentication purposes. In addition to security, the driving force behind biometric verification has been convenience. Among different available biometric techniques, fingerprint recognition is the most prominent one. Fingerprint authentication refers to the automated method of verifying a match between two human fingerprints. Fingerprints are one of many forms of biometrics used to identify an individual and verify their identity.…show more content…
Anti-spoofing System is harder to fool by common misleading means including latex overlays.
Automated The device can function independently of an operator. Quality of the print no longer tied to the skill of operator manipulating the subject’s hand.
Backwards compatible 3D prints are flattened to produce 2D fingerprints consistent and compatible with existing databases and matching programs.
Segmentation Enhanced segmentation for multi-finger capture.
Each biometric has its own pros and cons. Biometric authentication systems have become the standard for access control because of their security, speed competence and ease of use. To judge the acceptance and rejection rates of a biometric in any particular application, one has to consider factors like scalability, user privacy and system security. Unlike 2D image, a 3D model can identify a person much more easily and effectively irrespective of position of his/her head or even if camera is not perfectly aligned with the subject. It can be concluded that 3D fingerprint recognition technology will prove as a major boon in the field of
