Feature level based monomodal biometric systems perform person recognition based on a multiple sources of biometric information and are affected by problems like integration of evidence obtained from multiple cues and normalization of features codes since they are heterogeneous, in addition of monomodal biometric systems problems like noisy sensor data, non-universality and lack of individuality of the chosen biometric trait, absence of an invariant representation for the biometric trait and susceptibility to circumvention. Some of these problems can be alleviated by using multimodal biometric systems that consolidate evidence from scores of multiple biometric systems. In this work, we address two important issues related to score level fusion. We have studied the performance of a score level fusion based multimodal biometric system against different monomodal biometric system based on voice, fingerprint modalities and a bimodal biometric system based on feature level fusion of the same modalities. These systems have been evaluated in terms of their efficiency and identification rate on a close group from the test data. These results are shown using cumulative match characteristic curve.
