Biometrics has been used to verify intrusion and identification of intruder in video surveillance system. Biometrics was divided into traditional biometrics and soft biometrics. Traditional biometrics is a method using information on face, iris, and fingerprint. Soft biometrics is a method using information on gender, ethnicity, and height. Recently, many researchers have been researched human identification using soft biometrics in long distance environment. In this paper, the authors analyze a human identification with applying traditional biometrics or soft biometrics suitable for video surveillance system. Also, they propose a framework to solve problems such as lighting, occlusion, and shadow.
