About the Authors
  • In today’s security-conscious society, real-world applications for authentication or identification require a highly accurate system for recognizing individual humans. The required level of performance cannot be achieved through the use of a single biometric such as face, fingerprint, ear, iris, palm, gait, or speech. Fusing multiple biometrics enables the indexing of large databases, more robust performance, and enhanced coverage of populations. Multiple biometrics are also naturally more robust against attacks than single biometrics. This book addresses a broad spectrum of research issues on multibiometrics for human identification, ranging from sensing modes and modalities to fusion of biometric samples and combination of algorithms. It covers publicly available multibiometrics databases, theoretical and empirical studies on sensor fusion techniques in the context of biometrics authentication, identification, and performance evaluation and prediction.

    • The book includes the entire gamut of multibiometrics topics including multimodal, multisensory levels of fusion, multiple algorithms and multiple data acquisition instances
    • It includes chapters on latest sensing devices for novel multibiometrics modalities, security assessment of multibiometrics systems and their dynamic management, and theoretically sound and novel approaches for fusion
    • It provides information on publicly available multibiometrics databases and addresses research issues related with performance modeling, prediction and validation of multibiometrics systems
