Abstract: In the recent times, it has been found from the literature that, only front-view of human-face images are used for the authentication of the human being. Very little amount of work has been carried out using side-view and temporal-view of the human-face for the authentication of the human being. The main fact lies in the mentality of present youth, who are very busy in taking the photographs with different poses. Generally the poses are taken from side-view. Hence in the present paper, the main focus has been kept, in the authentication process using methods of recent trends in the field of engineering. The main objective is to handle the variability in human-face appearances due to changes in the viewing direction. Poses, illumination conditions, and expressions are considered as three main parameters, which are processed for the overall authentication process. For the overall processing, extensive feature set like texture, contrast, correlation and shape are extracted by employing modified region growing algorithm and texture feature by local Gabor XOR pattern (LGXP) and artificial neural network (ANN) technique. The present work has been analysed using the data of different subjects with varying ages.
