As per the saying “NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF INVENTION”, the need for a new type of identification and authentication technique has led to the development of Biometrics.
“Biometrics is an automated method of recognizing a person based on a physiological or behavioral characteristic. “
  Biometric technologies are becoming the foundation of an extensive array of highly secure identification and personal verification solutions. As the level of security breaches and transaction fraud increases, the need for highly secure identification and personal verification technologies is becoming apparent.Biometric-based solutions...
