The paper proposes a likelihood ratio fusion of face, voice and signature multimodal biometrics verification application systems. Figueiredo-Jain (FJ) estimation algorithm of finite Gaussian mixture modal (GMM) is employed. Automated biometric systems for human identification measure a “signature” of the human body, compare the resulting characteristic to a database, and render an application dependent decision. These biometric systems for personal authentication and identification are based upon physiological or behavioral features which are typically distinctive, Multi-biometric systems, which consolidate information from multiple biometric sources, are gaining popularity because they are able to overcome limitations such as non-universality, noisy sensor data, large intra-user variations and susceptibility to spoof attacks that are commonly encountered in mono modal biometric systems. Simulation show that finite mixture modal (GMM) is quite effective in modelling the genuine and impostor score densities, fusion based the resulting density estimates achieves a significant performance on eNTERFACE 2005 multi-modal database based on face, signature and voice modalities.
