Description: The research paper Biometric Authentication System speaks about Biometrics and the procedures for securing any transaction. Biometrics is an upcoming field that relies heavily on the physical characteristics of a person.
The applications of biometrics make it easier for online transactions and transactions that include passwords, PINs, and Smart Cards. As the threat of hackers and others is increasing day by day, the demand for security is also increasing alongside.
Here in comes the role of biometrics which depends on an authenticated truth that the physical characteristic traits of a person are very unique and cannot be replicated come what may.
With the increased facilities of the transaction, the element that is seriously jeopardized is ‘security’. With hackers and other cybercriminals that are escaping scot-free, the security measures fall thin. Biometric offers just the right kind of security that a person requires while in the process of an e-transaction.
Biometrics identifies a very appealing and universal fact that the personality traits are peculiar and unique and cannot be copied whatsoever. This makes certain body features quite interesting to the computer scientists and they depend heavily on these to provide a cent percent security to the transacting clients.
The unmatched physical features and other personality traits will make you alone eligible to transact your own procedures. Iris recognition, retinal scan, fingerprinting and other viable techniques of biometrics are currently the order of the day.
Although a bare minimum of companies i.e. pathetically just 1% use the biometric procedures and 15% have rejected them straightaway still there is every possibility that with growing demand of security concerns these techniques will certainly in the future catch up like wildfire.
Conclusion: The research paper concludes on a note that biometrics is a domain that needs greater exposure. Awareness has to be created in the society. Although latent as of now Biometrics is a domain that has an indisputable growth prospect. All the routine security measures will be transformed into biometric procedures sooner than later.
