Biometric Recognition and Security: Theory, Methods and Applications describes recent methods of biometric recognition for the identification and verification of individuals based on their physiological traits (palm of the hand, fingerprints of the fingers of the hand, and ear) and behavioral characteristics (walking characteristics). The book is ideal for engineering students, professional masters or research doctoral students and others who are interested in the field of biometrics. It can also be used by industrialists wishing to develop biometric recognition systems or by teacher-researchers responsible for developing lectures on biometric recognition.
- Describes ways to develop biometric recognition systems
- Provides recent methods of biometric recognition
