About this book

Reliable human authentication schemes are of paramount importance in our highly networked society.  Advances in the field of biometrics help address the myriad of problems associated with traditional human recognition methods. The performance and benefits of a biometric system can be significantly enhanced by consolidating the evidence presented by multiple biometric sources. Multibiometric systems are expected to meet the stringent performance requirements imposed by large-scale authentication systems.

Handbook of Multibiometrics, a professional book, introduces multibiometric systems, and demonstrates the noteworthy advantages of these systems over their unimodal counterparts. In addition, this book describes in detail the various scenarios that are possible when fusing biometric evidence from multiple information sources.

This comprehensive volume on multibiometric systems concisely and clearly outlines the different fusion methodologies that have been proposed by researchers to integrate multiple biometric traits.

Handbook of Multibiometrics is designed for a professional audience, composed of researchers and practitioners in the industry. This book is also suitable for graduate-level students as a secondary text in computer science within advanced biometrics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is intended to provide an overview of the state of the art in multibiometrics and technology. The authors are active researchers in the field, and have already published an extensive list of works closely related to this volume, giving them strong knowledge base. … Overall, the book is easy to read and includes a significant body of background literature. … computing professional can benefit from reading it, as the book constitutes a good example of the current research in the biometric authentication field." (Stefan Robila, Computing Reviews, January, 2007)
