Introduction Humans cannot exist without systems of meaning and having an identity. Over the years, human identity has been represented by a complex set of many external variables: family, community, ethnicity, nationality, religion, philosophy, science, occupation and so on. We are now moving towards internal variables of a human body: biometric indicators for human identity authentication. As seen across nations, biometrics technology driven human identity authentication applications are taking off.…
