Security is an important aspect and international attention in smart environments. The surveillance cameras are deployed in all commercial and public places in order to improve the security against terrorism activities. Nowadays, more and more government and industry resources are involved in the researches of security systems, especially in multimedia security, i.e., to enforce security measures, from the images and videos taken from suspicious environment. Therefore, there exists a need to ensure the originality and authenticity of multimedia data as well as to extract intelligent information from enormous images/video streams taken from suspicious environments to build stronger security systems. In this scenario, person identification plays a major role in security systems from the footages of suspicious environments. Without any human assistance, video analyst can identify the person from a large number of videos.
