Description: The research paper Biochips Tools of Ultra Sensitive Detector identifies various biometric procedures. It suggests that biometrics is a breakthrough research in the field of Computer Science Engineering.
Biometrics is based on the conjecture that the human physical features and characteristics are inimitable. Speech recognition, voice recognition, retinal scan, iris recognition and fingerprinting are some of the biometric procedures.
With the increase in the rate of e-transactions and transactions based on PINs, passwords and smart cards there is a serious dearth of security levels, it is here that the principles of biometrics play. The domain provides greater security levels to the above-mentioned procedures by providing security by considering the nuances and subtleties of human body characteristics.
There are two different ways to resolve a person’s identity: verification and identification. Verification (Am I whom I claim I am?) involves confirming are denying a person’s claimed identity.
In identification, one has to establish a person’s identity (Who am I?). Each one of these approaches has its own complexities and could probably be solved best by a certain biometric system.
Fingerprints are unique to each individual and no two fingerprints are alike. Fingerprint recognition is most widely accepted biometric among the technology being used today.
Fingerprints contain patterns of ridges and valleys as well as minutiae points. Minutiae points are local ridge characteristics that occur at either the ridge bifurcation or a ridge ending.
Conclusion: The research paper concludes on the note that there is no denying of the manifold benefits derived from biometrics. Biometrics facilitates astounding security measures and utterly reliable. Biometrics is a domain that needs greater publicity and coverage.
Knowledge of biometrics has to be created in the society. Although dormant as of now Biometrics is a domain that has an incontrovertible growth prospect. All the regular security measures will have to transform into biometric procedures as early as possible.
