What is Biometrics?
Biometrics is the science and technology
of measuring and analyzing biological
or behavioral data. In information

analyzing human body characteristics
such as fingerprints, eye retinas and
irises, voice patterns, facial patterns,
and hand measurements, for
authentication purposes.
