9783639153705: Biometrics for Personal Identification: An Analysis of the Face Recognition Technology

BIOMETRICS FOR PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION. In modern life, authorization and authentication of individuals have become vital components of day-to-day activities. As of today, most methods of identification rely on ?things? we know or possess, for instance passwords or identification cards. Since documents may be lost, forged or stolen and passwords may be forgotten or compromised, traditional methods of identification are merely insufficient. A promising technology that offers solutions to the current limitations is based on biometrics. By nature, biometric features are extremely difficult to reproduce or imitate, hence the potential of reducing identity misuse. The fact that we are naturally guided to identifying individuals through visual information gives face recognition a wide range of applications. This book reports on an extensive analysis of the face recognition technology. Its objectives, falling under the umbrella of pattern recognition, are to investigate current and new approaches to personal identification, to identify strengths and weaknesses of different methodologies, and to propose design guidelines and systems that cope with current limitations.
