Biometric identification methods have been in use for a very long time. The reason being the biometrics recognition is very secure. Also every person has unique biometric characteristics. The term Biometric is derived from a Greek word. Bio means life, and metric means to measure. This paper presents a new method for verifying a person's identity. Here one of the behavioral biometrics i.e. the Gait pattern of Human Being is used. A wearable device mounted with Accelerometer is used to collect data for Gait analysis. This Accelerometer will detect leg's movement in horizontal, vertical and sideway direction.
