Sumit U. Mali, Prof. A. S. Narote "Ear and Face Recognition System for Multilevel Authentication", International Journal of Engineering Trends and Technology (IJETT), V48(1),35-38 June 2017. ISSN:2231-5381. www.ijettjournal.org. published by seventh sense research group

Multilevel authentication using Ear image is future technology in image processing. Many unique features of human are explored, but not many are used. This paper focuses on one such area that is authentication technique using Ear model and also provides the Face image recognition. The primary motivation of this system is to use the system for the high secure authentication using three dimensional Ear and Face Recognition. This paper tries to solve the problem of biometric authentication using Ear recognition along with Face and OTP (One Time Password). The algorithms that are used for this system are Haar-Cascade for Face and Ear detection, LBP (Local Binary Pattern) for Face Recognition and ORB (Oriented Fast and Rotated Brief) for Ear recognition. In this system, the user will be authenticated, using a username, password and Ear image as well as Face image which are captured from the HD (High Definition) camera, and the authentication technique will be done by matching real time Ear image and Face image with the stored Ear image and Face image while sign-up. This paper presents the technology that provides the multilevel security using Ear and Faces recognition. At the level of the result, it shows how it is impactable than other security systems.
