The password based authorization scheme for all available security systems can effortlessly be hacked by the hacker or a malicious user. One might not be able to guarantee that the person who is using the password is authentic or not. Only biometric systems are one which make offered automated authentication. There are very exceptional chances of losing the biometric identity, only ifthe accident of an individualmay persists. Footprint based biometric system has been evaluated so far. In this paper a number ofapproaches of footprint recognition have been deliberated.
