“Biometric” implies the identification or authentication of humans by their traits such as face, fingerprint, voice,
iris, palm, DNA, and signature. Biometric authentication has become the most important part of security due to
increase in unauthorized immigration, visa frauds, border intrusion, etc. It has increasingly getting deployed at all
the security checkpoints of airports, stations, commercial complex, retail malls, etc. Biometric technology
provides accurate authentication and negligible margin of duplicity or error.

The 2002 film Minority Report features extensive use of casual Iris/Retina scanning techniques for both personal
Identification and Point Of Sale transaction purposes. The main character changes his official Identity by having
his eyes transplanted, and later accesses a security system using one of the removed eyes.

The movie Gattaca portrays a society wherein there are two classes of people: those genetically engineered to
be superior (termed "Valid") and the inferior natural humans ("Invalid"). People considered "Valid" have greater
privileges, and access to areas restricted to such persons is controlled by automated biometric scanners similar
in appearance to fingerprint scanners, but which prick the finger and sample DNA from the resulting blood

This report describes the various types of biometric technology such as face recognition, fingerprint recognition,
iris recognition, voice recognition, signature recognition, vein recognition and DNA recognition that are being
used for different applications. Out of all the above types, face recognition, fingerprint recognition and iris
recognition are commonly used in most of the applications. Fingerprint recognition is the oldest type of biometric
authentication and can be seen at banks, ATMs and various government offices.
