Additional Biometric Traits



As stated in Chapter 1, a wide variety of biometric traits have been proposed and studied in the literature. In some cases, academic curiosity about the uniqueness and permanence of certain biological traits has spurred exploratory research (e.g., iris); in other cases, new application domains have resulted in the exploration of novel biometric traits (e.g., periocular biometrics). Furthermore, certain biometric traits are uniquely suited for some applications and scenarios.
