Biometrics is concerned with identifying a person based on the physical or behavioral traits of him such as face, fingerprints, voice and iris. With the pronounced need for robust human recognition techniques in critical applications such as secure access control, international border crossing and law enforcement. Biometrics is a viable technology that can be used into large-scale identity management systems. Biometric systems work under the assumption that many of the physical or behavioral traits of humans are distinctive to an individual, and that they can be precisely acquired using sensors and represented in a numerical format that helps in automatic decision-making in the context of authentication. In the presented approach effort has been made to design a Voice based Biometric Authentication system with desired aspiration level.
