Now-a-days we are facing majority of crimes related to security issues andthese arise due to the leakage of passwords or illegal authentication. At one end, there is acontinuous and tremendous improvement in the lifestyle of Humans while at the other end; the technological crimes are increasing rapidly. As there is a problem, there must bea solution. The need for a compromising technology which can be adopted is highlyimperative. Technologies capable of identifying each person uniquely need to bedeveloped. The only powerful solution for the problem of illegal authentication is
.Nature has made human beings with different characteristics which may varyfrom one person to another. This property is made use of by
todistinctly identify each person. Biometrics is a means of using the physiological or behavioral characteristics of a person as a kind of permanent password.This paper provides an overall idea of Biometrics , the typical BiometricModel, an overview of the Biometric techniques and focuses mainly on KeystrokeBiometrics which is easy to implement and can provide fool proof security based on theeffectiveness of the algorithm.
