A Brief Review about Biometrics Systems in Modern Context

Hector Caballero, Leopoldo Gil-Antonio, Erika Lopez


Authentication systems employ various access mechanisms for the data validation process.Nowadays there are many proposals focused on solving the traditional problems that exist to validate the records of installations in public or private places.With the appearance of COVID-19, the use of technology has intensified to avoid contact with physical devices and achieve successful access.This article shows a compilation of work dedicated to methods and techniques for access to facilities by reading modern biometric systems.
