Overview

Biometrics refers to automated methods of recognizing a person based on physiological or behavioral characteristics. Among the features measured are face, fingerprints, hand geometry, handwriting, iris, retina, vein, and voice.

With an A–Z format, the comprehensive Encyclopedia of Biometrics provides easy access to relevant information on all aspects of biometrics for those seeking entry into the broad field of biometrics. The Encyclopedia is composed of approximately 250 entries, covering all areas of Biometrics including the following:

Biometric Modalities:
Face Fingerprint Iris and Retina Palmprint Hand Geometry Vein Signature Gait Voice Ear Keystroke Multimodality Lip-reading Odor Skull Teeth DNA

Biometric Systems and Applications:
System Design Sensors Liveness and Security Performance Evaluation Applications Non-Technical Issues (Privacy, Societal etc.)
Standardization

Each entry includes a definition, key words, list of synonyms, list of related entries, illustration(s), applications, and a bibliography. Most entries include useful literature references providing the reader with a portal to more detailed information on any given topic. The style of the entries in the Encyclopedia of Biometrics is expository and tutorial, making the book a practical resource for experts in the field as well as professionals in other fields who need to access this vital information but may not have the time to work their way through an entire text on their topic of interest.

A minimum of 250 topic entries based on principles including: (1) wide list coverage; (2) minimized overlapping among topics. Editorial Board members are proposing approximately 20 topic entries in his/her areas, with a total near 400.
