Biometric authentication has become the most important part of security due to an increase in unauthorized immigration, visa frauds, border intrusion, and so on. It has increasingly been getting deployed at all the security checkpoints of airports, stations, commercial complex, retail malls, and so on. Biometric technology provides accurate authentication and negligible margin of duplicity or error.
