Biometrics-based authentication has advantages over other mechanisms, but there are several variabilities and vulnerabilities that need to be addressed. No single modality or combinations of modalities can be applied universally that is best for all applications. This paper deliberates different combinations of physiological biometric modalities with different levels of fusion. In our experiments, we have selected Face, Palmprint, Finger Knuckle Print, Iris, and Handvein modalities. All themodalities are of image type and publicly available, comprising at least 100 users. Proper selection of modalities for fusion can yield desired level of performance. Through our experiments it is learnt that a multimodal system which is considered just by increasing number of modalities by fusion would not yield the desired level of performance. Many alternate options for increased performance are presented.
