Biometrics refers to the quantifiable data (or metrics) related to human characteristics and traits. Biometrics identification is used in computer science as a form of identification and access control. It is also used to identify individuals in groups that are under surveillance. Biometric identifiers are the distinctive, measurable characteristics used to label and describe individuals.

Among all the biometric technologies you can find fingerprint, face recognition, DNA, palm print, hand geometry, iris recognition, retina and odour/scent.
More traditional means of access control include token-based identification systems, such as a driver’s license or passport, and knowledge-based identification systems, such as a password or personal identification number. Since biometric identifiers are unique to individuals, they are more reliable in verifying identity than token and knowledge-based methods. However, the collection of biometric identifiers raises privacy concerns about the ultimate use of this information.

Many believe that using biometric solutions is just a matter of security. Most of the companies that buy biometric access control systems today, choose these because of the comfort and ease of use.
