In the development of recent technologies, a biometrics system has been the important affordable and more reliable system. A Biometrics identification system is refers to the automatic recognition of individual person based on their characteristics. Basically biometrics system has two broad areas namely unimodal biometric system and multimodal biometric system. In unimodal system it has some disadvantage due to its lack of nonuniversality and unacceptable error rate. To overcome those unimodal challenging issues, multimodal is the better system for its two or three level of identification and verification. In this paper multimodal biometrics system characteristics are studied with various biometrics traits. The comparison of different modalities is also processed in this paper to choose the best authentication mechanism. This paper performs a well studied system based on multi biometrics system with its processing.
