Establishing the identity of a person with the use of individual biometric features has become the need for the present technologically advancing world. Due to rise in data thefts and identity hijacking, there is a critical need for providing user security using biometric authentication techniques. Biometrics is the science of recognizing a person by evaluating the distinguished physiological and biological traits of the person. A unimodal biometric system is known to have many disadvantages with regard to accuracy, reliability, and security. Multimodal biometric systems combine more than one biometric trait to identify a person in order to increase the security of the application. The proposed multimodal biometric system combines three biometric traits for individual authentication namely Face, Fingerprint, and Voice. MapReduce is the technique used for analyzing and processing big data sets that cannot fit into memory.
