Cloud computing represents one of the fastest growing areas of technology and offers a new computing model for various applications and services. This model is particularly interesting for the area of biometric recognition, where scalability, processing power and storage requirements are becoming a bigger and bigger issue with each new generation of recognition technology. Next to the availability of computing resources, another important aspect of cloud computing with respect to biometrics is accessibility. Since biometric cloud-services are easily accessible, it is possible to combine different existing implementations and design new multi-biometric services that next to almost unlimited resources also offer superior recognition performance and, consequently, ensure improved security to its client applications.
