Biometrics, Multimodal, Fusion, Spoofing, Feature Extraction
Biometric systems for today’s high security applications must meet stringent performance requirements. The fusion of multiple biometrics helps to minimize the system error rates. Fusion methods include processing biometric modalities sequentially until an acceptable match is obtained. More sophisticated methods combine scores from separate classifiers for each modality. This paper is an overview of multimodal biometrics, challenges in the progress of multimodal biometrics, the main research areas and its applications to develop the security system for high security areas
