Title: "Hidden Biometrics: when biometrics meets biomedical engineering", Publisher Springer

Scope: Biometrics is commonly used to recognize individuals by their physical or behavioral characteristics. From the literature, one can point out that most of the publications are devoted to some main identification or verification modalities, such as: fingerprint, palm-print, face, iris, voice, etc. These biometric security modalities are universal, easily collectable and widely acceptable. Consequently, they have been efficiently embedded in numerous systems and devices, including mobile platforms. In this book, the purpose is to deal with a different biometric category, called Hidden Biometrics. Unlike the common biometrics, Hidden biometrics explores intrinsic and human body parts or their physiological activities, invisible to the naked eye. For instance, this may concern brain structures, heart activity, skeleton morphology,...etc. These human body parts can be visualized only by some specific imaging techniques, or using some specific sensors, employed basically in the biomedical engineering field. Therefore, the major objective of this book is to connect two fields, namely biometric security and biomedical engineering.

The content of this book is suitable for final-year undergraduate students, postgraduate students, engineers and researchers in the field of Computer-engineering, Computer graphics, Biometrics, Biomedical engineering and more specifically applied Digital Signal and Image processing.
