The vulnerability of finger vein recognition to spoofing is studied in this paper. A collection of spoofing finger vein images has been created from real finger vein samples. Finger vein images are printed using a commercial printer and then, presented at an open source finger vein sensor. Experiments are carried out using an extensible framework, which(More)
With its wide range of applicability, gender classification is an important task in face image analysis and it has drawn a great interest from the pattern recognition community. In this paper, we aim to deal with this problem using Local Binary Pattern Histogram Sequences as feature vectors in general. Differently from what has been done in similar studies,(More)
Finger vein recognition is a recent biometric application, which relies on the use of human finger vein patterns beneath the skin's surface. While several methods have been proposed in the literature, its applicability to uncontrolled scenarios has not yet been shown. To this purpose this paper first introduces the VERA database, a new challenging publicly(More)
