Abstract: This lecture is a survey on biometrics for human identification. A biometric system is a pattern recognition system that recognizes a person on the basis of a feature vector derived from a specific physiological or behavioral characteristic that the person possesses. All biometric systems work in a similar fashion: - The user submits a sample that is an identifiable, unprocessed image or recording of the physiological or behavioral biometric via an acquisition device, - This image and/or biometric is processed to extract information about distinctive features. In this article we present an overview of traditional and emerging both physiological and behavioral biometric methods. In the field of traditional physiological biometric modalities, we discuss: fingerprint biometrics, face biometrics, iris and retina biometric, hand geometry biometric, lip biometric, palmprints biometric and ear biometrics. Traditional behavioral biometric modalities include, for example, voice biometric and signature biometric. Next, new physiological modalities such as DNA, EEG, Odor, ECG and new behavioral biometrics such as the gait biometric, mouse dynamics biometrics and keystroke dynamics biometrics are discussed. Finally, we provide a brief outline of existing examples of human authentication applications.
