This tutorial is a survey of speaker verification technology and its applications in the telephone network. It describes the algorithms that have been developed to reliably perform personal identity verification over the telephone network. Speech databases for developing and evaluating this technology are described. Assessment of algorithm and system performance and its relevance to practical applications are discussed. Examples of practical implementations of speaker verification technology in the telephone network are also discussed.
