Security is a fundamental issue in today's world. In this chapter we discuss various aspects of security in daily life that can be solved using image processing techniques by grouping in three main categories: visual tracking, biometrics and digital media security. Visual tracking refers to computer vision techniques that analyses the scene to extract features representing objects (e.g., pedestrian) and track them to provide input to analyse any anomalous behaviour. Biometrics is the technology of detecting, extracting and analysing human's physical or behavioural features for identification purposes. Digital media security typically includes multimedia signal processing techniques that can protect copyright by embedding information within the media content using watermarking approaches. Individual topics are discussed referring recent literature.
