There are various types of Biometric identification depending on the physical characteristic that it lends. Some of them are discussed below.
• The ridges in the finger print starts developing right from the fourth month while you’re in your mother’s fetus. As a man gets older the ridges expand and get bigger, but the space between them remains constant and it is unique for every individual. Hence it is used as one of the primary characteristic for identification in biometric.
• Palm Vein Authentication uses an infra-red beam penetrating the palm of the user and the veins within the wrist are reflected on the machine as mere black lines. The vein pattern in each individual hand is complex and so the authentication is definitely unique. Also it is very difficult for the machines to counterfeit as the veins are internal part of the body and no one can deviate it.
• This is one of the modes of verification that is in use since he 1930’s. A retina scan analyses the capillary blood vessels in the eye which remains same throughout life. The scanner uses a low-intensity light penetrating through the eyes and making an image of the eye with the help of the blood vessels.
