Reliable and accurate veri!cation of people is extremely important in a number of business transactions as well as access to privileged information. Automatic veri!cation methods based on physical biometric characteristics such as !ngerprint or iris can provide positive veri!cation with a very high accuracy. However, the biometrics-based methods assume that the physical characteristics of an individual (as captured by a sensor) used for veri!cation are su0ciently unique to distinguish one… CONTINUE READING
