Imaging for Hidden Biometrics

Part of the Series in BioEngineering book series (SERBIOENG)


In this chapter visible biometrics is highlighted though a classical review on face recognition, including some known approaches from the literature. Therefore, it will be evoked some multispectral approaches such as Near Infrared (NIR) and Infrared (IR), and in the same context, deep hidden biometrics using X-ray imaging will be considered. Finally, a promising and safe MRI biometrics is described through some recent advances in brain biometrics, considered as a robust and safe modality. The purpose of using some hidden biometrics imaging techniques consists basically into preventing potential attacks.
