Biometric Authentication System, Analysis, Applications, Comparison


Biometrics authentication is a growing technology which has been used in huge areas like forensics, telecommunication, government, traffic and health care services. A biometric authentication system provides recognition of an each and every person based on physiological or behavioral characteristics. In this paper the main focus is an comparison of various biometric systems such as iris, retina, DNA, face, ear, voice, heartbeat, gait etc. and simply define their advantages, disadvantages, feature and application. The comparison criteria are accuracy, cost, performance, acceptability etc.
