An unimodal biometric systems, which relies only on a single trait of a person for identification is often not able to meet the desired performance. Combining multiple biometrics may enhance the performance of personal authentication system in accuracy and reliability which is adopted in multimodal biometrics. This paper describes the feature extraction techniques for three modalities viz. fingerprint, iris and face. The extracted information is stored as a template which can be fused using density based score level fusion (using GMM followed by likelihood ratio test).
