Facial Recognition as Password in Nigerian Security Printing and Minting (Mint)

Saratu Aliyu, Nighat Mir

Facial recognition is one biometric method that has taken the world by storm. While face recognition is hardly a task for humans, it is a complex task for computers. A lot of research has been done in search of an algorithm to teach a computer facial recognition. The current growth in face recognition technology and the lack of a sound security system at Nigerian security, printing and minting (MINT) inspired the authors to create a security system using face recognition for the security department in Nigerian security, printing and minting (MINT). A lot of the defense applications, security applications and commercial applications require real time face recognition systems. This paper discusses on the existing technique that is applied to face recognition, particularly the Turk and Pentland ‘Eigenface’ technique. The explanation in this paper covers the Eigenfaces technique used in face recognition.
