“Biometric Systems: Algorithms, Tools and Applications”

The development of smart city infrastructures, automation industries, advanced communication technologies and having a cashless society have facilitate people to become more interconnected than ever before. In this competitive world, security threats from hackers, malicious users and hard core criminals in terms of vulnerability of data by stealing secured information, identity thefts, cross-border vulnerability, terrorism, etc. are the main concerns in today’s society. To safeguard people from counterfeiting of identity and terrorism, biometrics systems play a crucial role where surveillance and identity checking could be made as regular practice and could be integrated with large infrastructures. Real life situations demand for a biometric system with high security and performance. An important way to improve the security and performance in biometric systems is biometric fusion. Multi-biometric system fuses multiple sources of biometric information. The purpose is to combine the evidences of complementary and non-correlated characteristics as much as possible for discriminating the information present in multi-biometric sources. The aim of this book is to present some unibiometrics and multibiometrics systems, which make use of different biometrics evidences. The book will provide up-to-date algorithms and theories used in human identification systems. The primary audience for the book includes faculty, graduate and research students, practitioners, independent researchers, developers, engineers, etc.
