Recent Developments in Document Biometrics for Tax Stamps

The term ‘biometrics’ is commonly used to describe technologies that employ human features that are unique to individuals – such as fingerprints or retinal eye patterns – as a way to identify those individuals.

Hence the term ‘document biometrics’, or ‘fingerprinting’.
