<p>Biometric recognition has become a common and reliable way to authenticate the identity of a person. Multimodal biometrics has become an interest of areas for researches in the recent past as it provides more reliability and accuracy. In multimodal biometric recognition, score level fusion has been a very promising approach to improve the overall system's accuracy. In this paper, score level fusion is carried out using three categories of classifiers like, rule classifier (fuzzy classifier), lazy classifier (Naïve Bayes) and learning classifiers (ABC-NN). These three classifiers have their own advantages and disadvantages so the hybridization of classifiers leads to provide overall improvements. The proposed technique consists of three modules, namely processing module, classifier module and combination module. Finally, the proposed fusion method is applied to remote biometric authentication. The implementation is carried out using MATLAB and the evaluation metrics employed are False Acceptance Rate (FAR), False Rejection Rate (FRR) and accuracy. The proposed technique is also compared with other techniques and by employing various combinations of modalities. From the results, we can observe that the proposed technique has achieved better accuracy value and Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curves when compared to other techniques. The proposed technique reached maximum accuracy of having 95% and shows the effectiveness of the proposed technique.</p>
