A Review on Biometric Technology

Kartik Choudhary, Rizwan Khan


Biometric Technology has turned out to be a popular area of research in computer vision and one of the most successful applications for identifying humans by capturing and analysing the sole feature or characteristic of   individual which is possessed by them and involves their Physical and Behavioral characteristics. For the individual validation and authentication the biometric system has this responsibility. Biometric Technology started from the fingerprints recognition and later on improvements were done in it to make it more secure which involves the face recognition and iris Recognition. Almost both of them are available and regarded as the accurate and reliable technology for biometric validation system. This review paper is all about Face recognition techniques in biometric locking system and Iris recognition technique of identification and the ways of making locking systems ways more efficient, full of ease, more secure, and far better than before so as to make locking or security stronger. It discusses about face recognition technique, its working and its application in different sector along with iris recognition, its working, its application.
