In this paper, we investigate the possibility of using heart sound as a biometric for human identification. The most significant contribution of using heart sound as a biometric is that it cannot be easily simulated or replicated as compared to other conventional biometrics. Our approach consists of a robust feature extraction scheme which is based on cepstral analysis with a specified configuration, combined with Gaussian mixture modeling. Various experiments have been conducted to determine… CONTINUE READING
