This paper describes a system using two complementary sorts of information issuing from a hidden Markov model (HMM) for online signature verification. At each point of the signature, 25 features are extracted. These features are normalized before training and testing in order to improve the performance of the system. This normalization is writer-dependent;(More)
This paper presents an original hidden Markov model (HMM) approach for online beat segmentation and classification of electrocardiograms. The HMM framework has been visited because of its ability of beat detection, segmentation and classification, highly suitable to the electrocardiogram (ECG) problem. Our approach addresses a large panel of topics some of(More)
With the increasing use of biometrics, more and more concerns are being raised about the privacy of the personal biometric data. Conventional biometric systems store biometric templates in a database. This may lead to the possibility of tracking personal information stored in one database by getting access to another database through cross-database(More)
Automatically verifying the identity of a person by means of biometrics (e.g., face and fingerprint) is an important application in our day-to-day activities such as accessing banking services and security control in airports. To increase the system reliability, several biometric devices are often used. Such a combined system is known as a multimodal(More)
In this paper, we present a new method for iris identification particularly convenient for visible light images. It relies on the use of packets of wavelets [8] for the production of an iris code. Experiments, conducted on a database of 700 iris images, acquired with visible light illumination, show an improvement of 2% of FAR and of around 11.5% of FRR(More)
In this paper, we study the relationship between a novel personal entropy measure for online signatures and the performance of several state-of-the-art classifiers. The entropy measure is based on local density estimation by a hidden Markov model. We show that there is a clear relationship between such entropy measure of a person's signature and the(More)
