The biometric technologies measure a variety of anatomical, physiological and behavioural characteristics, to distinguish individual and to check that the image or signal presented is that of a real face, iris, fingerprint, palm and voice. Measurements of a living entity will vary and highly dependent on environmental conditions and user behaviour.
