	%X In this work we present an efficient approach for face
recognition in the infrared spectrum. In the proposed approach
physiological features are extracted from thermal images in order to
build a unique thermal faceprint. Then, a distance transform is used
to get an invariant representation for face recognition. The obtained
physiological features are related to the distribution of blood vessels
under the face skin. This blood network is unique to each individual
and can be used in infrared face recognition. The obtained results are
promising and show the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
