Finger Vein Authentication for Voting Using IOT
In this era, we see that the security threats are at a constant rise and it’s high time we rethink the existing security paradigm. Voting is the cornerstone of our democracy and the fundamental right of our citizens, but the recent allegations regarding the manipulation of voting machines, puts forward a serious question, that whether the existing method is tamper-proof or not? In this regard, we propose a finger-vein based authentication system for secured voting. Finger-vein authentication is a biometric tool that utilizes an individual’s finger-vein for carrying out the personal identity verification. Its implementation is effective and economical, these unique features makes it different from the other biometric tools and advocates its wide usage in the security systems.
