Reliability in the personal authentication is key to the security in the networked society. Many physiological characteristics of humans, i.e. biometrics, are typically time invariant, easy to acquire, and unique for every individual. Biometric features such as face, iris, fingerprint, hand geometry, palmprint, signature, etc. have been suggested for the security in access control. Palmprint and face recognition has been investigated critically in this paper. Many different algorithms for recognition have been addressed in this paper along with its advantages and disadvantages.
