In our global interconnected information society, there is an ever-growing need to authenticate and identify individuals. Biometrics-based authentication is emerging as the most reliable solution for establishing the identity of individuals in a variety of applications. A number of biometric technologies and systems for authentication have either been deployed or are under development. The International Book Series on Biometrics (KISB) will systematically introduce the various technologies and systems, presented by biometric experts to summarize their rich experience, and explore how to design robust and reliable biometric systems with an in-depth discussion.
In addition, this series aims to serve as an international exchange for researchers, professionals, and industrial practitioners to share their knowledge and to disseminate, in a concise manner, the ever increasing amount of information that is becoming available in the field of biometrics. KISB will contain new material that describes, in a unified way, the basic concepts, theories and characteristic features of integrating and formulating the different facets of biometrics, together with recent developments and major applications. Distinguished biometric experts, from the global community, are being invited to write books in this series. Each volume will provide exhaustive information on the developments in their respective area. KISB will provide a balanced mix of technology, systems and applications. A comprehensive bibliography on the related subjects will also be appended for the convenience of our readers.
