A Hybrid Biometric Authentication Algorithm
A facial recognition system is a computer based application for automatically identifying or verifying a person from a digital image. One of the ways to do this is by comparing the selected facial features from the image and a facial database. Some facial recognition algorithms identify faces by extracting landmarks, or features, from an image of the subject's face. The accurate face is detected by the position relation of the face and the eyes. A new approach is proposed to improve face recognition in the paper. The face features are extracted using the DCT and EHMM algorithm is used to recognize the face and the eyes. A transform domain approach with HMM for face recognition is presented.
