Using biometrics to verify identity means using a physical characteristic such as face, voice or fingerprints to authenticate an individual’s claimed identity. Fingerprint matching is by far the most successful biometric technology because of its ease of use, non-intrusiveness and reliability. Fingerprints consist of ridges and valleys formed in complex patterns that are unique for every person and thereby provide an optimal verification method.
