Biometrics and Security in Smartphones

Authors(2) :-U. Suba, R. Karthikayani

In the present scenario, among our huge life requirements, security plays a vital role in our daily life. Till now there exist some of the security system which includes Passwords, Personal identification number (PIN), Pattern screen locks, Fingerprint scanner. Since the existing system is not fully protect our device, we need some technical development. So, here I have modify the existing system by implementing a biometric reader for eyeball scanning.the significance of biometrics, specifically iball scanning which have been implemented into smartphones, primarily the iPhone5S. . The security of the technology is presented and analyzed while the security breaches and hacks are demonstrated in detail. We look at secure options in Android vs. iOS. And we also look at the future of biometrics and soon to be wearable technology.We then propose the idea of two factor authentication and a iball scanning database.
