In the recent decade, one of our major concerns in the global technological society of information security is confirmation that a person accessing confidential information is authorized to perform so. Such mode of access is generally accomplished by a person's confirming their identity by the use of some method of authentication system. In present days, the requirement for safe security in storing individual information has been developing rapidly and among the potential alternative is implementing innovative biometric identification techniques. This chapter discusses how the advent of the 20th century has brought forth the security principles of identification and authentication in the field of biometric analysis. The chapter reviews vulnerabilities in biometric authentication and issues in system implementation. The chapter also proposes the multifactor authentication and the use of multimodal biometrics, i.e., the combination of Electrocardiogram (ECG) and Phonocardiogram (PCG) signals to enhance reliability in the authentication process.
