Biometrics are physical or behavioral human characteristics that can be used to digitally identify a person to grant access to systems, devices, or data. Examples of these biometric identifiers are fingerprints, facial patterns, voice or typing cadence.
Biometrics are body measurements and calculations related to human characteristics. Biometrics authentication (or realistic authentication) is used in computer science as a form of identification and access control. It is also used to identify individuals in groups that are under surveillance.
A fingerprint scanner is a type of electronic security system that uses fingerprints for biometric authentication to grant user access to information or to approve transactions. It used to be that fingerprint scanners were mostly seen in movies and TV shows, or read about in science fiction novels.
Face scanner is the future generation recognition system that provides an incredibly versatile human verification process. … Facial recognition system captures still images or lives video images to identify an individual through a certain distance as it does not involve any physical interaction with the person.
Soft biometric traits refer to physical and behavioral traits, such as gender, height, and weight, which are not unique to a specific subject but are useful for identification, verification, and description of human subjects.
For increased security, a combination of biometrics, also called multimodal biometrics, provides greater accuracy and more flexibility than a single biometric. BioID thus offers a combination of face and eye traits, which can be captured at the same time, for greater fraud protection and an easy user experience.
