Future Aspects of Biometrics in the Era of Cloud Computing

Divyakant Meva, Dr. C K Kumbharana


With the enormous use of Biometrics technology for authentication throughout the world, the future of biometrics requires to concentrate on the aspects of processing power and ability for storage of data on dedicated devices. The solution now a day is to implement biometric services in the cloud computing environment. The other aspect is about securing assets on cloud computing. Biometrics can be adopted as a service in cloud computing environment. In this paper, we have tried to explore various applications of biometrics in cloud computing.
