Biometrics has been popularly featured in movies and on TV as a cool access control and human identification method. In real life, how does biometrics work? Is it really capable of the amazing features that popular culture depicts?

The goal of this book is to introduce readers to basic concepts, classic approaches, and the newest design, development, and applications of biometrics. Moreover, it also provides a glimpse of future designs and research directions in biometrics. In addition, it also discusses some latest concerns and issues in this area. The text not only focuses on the technologies but also covers design, development, and applications. It is suitable for a wide range of readers: people who would like to know about the latest developments in the human identification area, college students and researchers who would like to study more about biometrics, and professionals in the biometrics area who would like to dive more into specific topic areas. To fulfill this goal, professional terms are explained in plain English so that even people with high school education can understand. At the same time, we provide a lot of technical insights into the newest designs and developments in the biometrics area.
