Biometrics is an automated method of recognizing or verifying a person based on a physical or behavioral characteristic. The features that are measured using biometrics include face fingerprints, palm, ear-lobe, handwriting, iris, retina, vein, and voice. Because each individual has a unique biometric print, security and verification solutions based on biometrics offer a better and more accurate means of ensuring application integrity, than passwords or access cards.
Automated methods of verifying or recognizing the identity of a living person on the basis of some physiological characteristics like a fingerprint or face pattern or some aspects of behavior, like handwriting or keystroke patterns.

The first time an individual uses a biometric system is called an enrollment. During the enrollment, biometric information captured from the individual is stored into the database. In subsequent uses, biometric information is detected and compared with the information stored at the time of enrollment. It is crucial that storage and retrieval of such systems themselves be secure if the biometric system is to be robust.
Any biometrics based verification or identification process consists of three stages:
Biometric technologies are fast becoming the foundation of an extensive array of highly secure identification and personal verification solutions.
