If you're interested in this area, there are a few classic articles
you should take a look at (below). I'm sure there is considerable
more recent stuff that i don't know about, but the general issues
raised in these articles still hold.

Good luck,

If what you mean is to use voice to identify a person, as in finger
print, then you can search the web for "speaker identification". It
is a thriving field in speech technologies having a lot of shared
methodologies with ASR, Automatic Speech Recognition. Speech
conference such as ICSLP, Eurospeech, ICASSP, each have sections on
this topic.
