Biometrics: Personal Identification in Networked Society is a comprehensive and accessible source of state-of-the-art information on all existing and emerging biometrics: the science of automatically identifying individuals based on their physiological or behavior characteristics. In particular, the book covers:

*General principles and ideas of designing biometric-based systems and their underlying tradeoffs

*Identification of important issues in the evaluation of biometrics-based systems

*Integration of biometric cues, and the integration of biometrics with other existing technologies

*Assessment of the capabilities and limitations of different biometrics

*The comprehensive examination of biometric methods in commercial use and in research development

*Exploration of some of the numerous privacy and security implications of biometrics.

Also included are chapters on face and eye identification, speaker recognition, networking, and other timely technology-related issues. All chapters are written by leading internationally recognized experts from academia and industry.


Biometrics: Personal Identification in Networked Society is an invaluable work for scientists, engineers, application developers, systems integrators, and others working in biometrics.
