A Biometric Identification Course for eSience Virtual Lab

Samir Akrouf, Selmani Larbi, Boubetra Djamel, and Mostefai Messaoud
Abstract—Determining the identity of a person automatically is still an actual problem. There is an urgent need to have automatic and reliable authentication systems in order to combat fraud and meet the requirements for different areas ranging from international border stations to accessing personal information. Biometrics is an alternative to the old methods of identification. It involves identifying persons from their physical or behavioral characteristics. Face, fingerprint, iris, etc, are examples of physical characteristics. This course aims to introduce first basic concepts related to the recognition of individuals, based on their physiological or behavioral biometric characteristics, to students and allow them to study the key techniques to achieve reliable systems for biometric recognition. In This paper we will present the architecture of the course which will be held on a virtual laboratory. The course objective is to give the student different skills which are necessary in this field of study. The course is divided in several parts; each one will present a specific topic and will provide different notions in order to let students understand theoretical concepts by practicing.

Index Terms—Virtual lab, biometric identification, biometric traits, biometric systems.
