Description

Biometrics is the science of establishing human identity based on the physical or behavioral attributes of an individual. It is a rapidly evolving field with applications ranging from securely accessing one?s computer to gaining entry into a country. While the deployment of large-scale biometric systems in both commercial and government applications has increased the public?s awareness of this technology, "Introduction to Biometrics" is the first textbook to introduce the fundamentals of Biometrics to undergraduate/graduate students. It covers commonly used modalities in the biometrics field including fingerprint, face, iris, hand geometry, signature and voice. Exercises at the end of each chapter will help students gain practical experience in designing computer programs for biometric applications. Designed for advanced-level students in computer science, "Introduction to Biometrics" is also suitable for researchers and biometric and computer security professionals.
