A Review On Speaker Verification: Challenges And Issues

[Full Text]



Sujiya Sreedharan, Chandra Eswaran



Speaker Recognition, Speaker Verification, Application on speaker verification, Issues, Challenges



Personal Voice based verification is an essential requirement for protecting and controlling various confidential resources in the present technological world. Security key codes like passwords and Personal identification number and other traditional passwords can be stolen and used without the permission of the legitimate user, which resulting in loss of integrity leading to great threat to security. Hence to overcome such security issues high-tech and consistent biometric authentication technique is required in verifying identity claim of an individual from his/her voice with enhanced security measures. Recent technologies focused towards biometric features which is the emerging development of mobile technology. This article gives an overview on speaker verification biometric technology with the issues and present scenario and various applications on voice processing technology.
