Identity verification faces several challenges, mainly in extracting unique features of individual biometric methods and classifications. For example, the forms of electric waves of the heart characterized by unique characteristics of human recognition and its reference are not periodic at ready, in order to generate a distinct set of ECG methods, which are used autocorrelation (AC) development in conjunction with dimension reduction methods. This writing paper suggests a new non-fiducial frame for an ECG biometric recognition using (PCA) to the reduction both of the dimensions high- vector autocorrelation vector and the verification system after noise removal of 8 individuals use Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT).
