Personal identification is a fundamental activity within our society. This identification is made possible by the emergence of the new concept of biometrics. Biometrics is the science of identifying or verifying an individual based on the physiological or behavioral characteristics like face, fingerprint, iris, signature, voice, retina, handwriting, and so forth. Biometric identifiers for personal authentication reduce or eliminate reliance on tokens, PINs, and passwords. It can be integrated into any application that requires security, access control, and identification or verification of people (Jain, Ross, & Prabhakar, 2004).
