Biometric Data are physical or behavioral human characteristics to that can be used to digitally identify a person to grant access to systems, devices or data. Examples of these biometric identifiers are fingerprints, facial patterns, voice or typing cadence.

Example Of Biometric Data

  • DNA Matching The identification of an individual using the analysis of segments from DNA.
  • Ear The identification of an individual using the shape of the ear.
  • Eyes or Iris Recognition The use of the features found in the iris to identify an individual.
  • Eyes or Retina Recognition The use of patterns of veins in the back of the eye to accomplish recognition.
  • Face Recognition The analysis of facial features or patterns for the authentication or recognition of an individuals identity. Most face recognition systems either use eigenfaces or local feature analysis.
  • Fingerprint Recognition – The use of the ridges and valleys (minutiae) found on the surface tips of a human finger to identify an individual.
  • Finger Geometry Recognition – The use of 3D geometry of the finger to determine identity.
  • Gait The use of an individuals walking style or gait to determine identity.
  • Hand Geometry Recognition – The use of the geometric features of the hand such as the lengths of fingers and the width of the hand to identify an individual.
  • Odour – The use of an individuals odor to determine identity.
  • Typing Recognition – The use of the unique characteristics of a persons typing for establishing identity.
  • Vein Recognition – Vein recognition is a type of biometrics that can be used to identify individuals based on the vein patterns in the human finger or palm.
  • Voice or Speaker Identification Identification is the task of determining an unknown speaker’s identity. 
  • Voice – Speaker Verification/Authentication: The use of the voice as a method of determining the identity of a speaker for access control.
  • Signature Recognition The authentication of an individual by the analysis of handwriting style, in particular the signature.

Where is biometric data used ?

Biometric device is now part of our life, this is used in our School, College, Office And Your Daily Routine work place for your attendance. but in some places it is used for our identification like Mobile Phone, Bank, Document Verification, Law Enforcement, Commercial Applications, Migration Control, Civil Identification, Healthcare, and Others places.

Why is biometrics important?

Biometrics deliver exact identification so its very useful technology, it’s balance convenience, security, and user experience. User friendly biometric systems deliver exactly what consumers want frictionless and secure user experiences.
