Biometrics and Face Recognition Techniques

  title={Biometrics and Face Recognition Techniques},
  author={Renu Bhatia},
Biometrics is a growing technology, which has been widely used in forensics, secured access and prison security. A biometric system is fundamentally a pattern recognition system that recognizes a person by determining the authentication by using his different biological features i.e. Fingerprint, retina-scan, iris scan, hand geometry, and face recognition are leading physiological biometrics and behavioral characteristic are Voice recognition, keystroke-scan, and signature-scan. In this paper…

In this paper different biometrics techniques such as Iris scan, retina scan and face recognition techniques are discussed and their applications are discussed.

A Review on Various Face Detection and Recognition Techniques

A biometric facial recognition system is used for the purpose of security normally in those areas where people are the centre of attraction and also due to its increased usability.


This paper emphasizes on better understanding of introduction to Biometrics, Biometric Modalities and Face recognition Techniques and focuses on face biometrics.

A Review on Security of Multimodal Biometrics

The unique parts of body that identifies a person are known as biometrics and when used in conjunction for the identification or verification of an individual are called as multi-modal BIOMETRICS.

Face Recognition for Smart Environments

The authors describe the face recognition technology used, explaining the algorithms for face recognition as well as novel applications, such as behavior monitoring that assesses emotions based on facial expressions.

Line-Based Face Recognition under Varying Pose

A novel image-based face recognition algorithm that uses a set of random rectilinear line segments of 2D face image views as the underlying image representation, together with a nearest-neighbor classifier as the line matching scheme, which achieves high generalization recognition rates for rotations both in and out of the plane.
