Handbook of Fingerprint Recognition
TLDR
This unique reference work is an absolutely essential resource for all biometric security professionals, researchers, and systems administrators. Expand
An introduction to biometric recognition
TLDR
A brief overview of the field of biometrics is given and some of its advantages, disadvantages, strengths, limitations, and related privacy concerns are summarized. Expand
Image Formation Process
Filterbank-based fingerprint matching
TLDR
A filter-based fingerprint matching algorithm which uses a bank of Gabor filters to capture both local and global details in a fingerprint as a compact fixed length FingerCode and is able to achieve a verification accuracy which is only marginally inferior to the best results of minutiae-based algorithms published in the open literature. Expand
A Multichannel Approach to Fingerprint Classification
TLDR
This work presents a fingerprint classification algorithm which is able to achieve an accuracy better than previously reported in the literature and is based on a two-stage classifier to make a classification. Expand
Biometric Recognition: Security and Privacy Concerns
TLDR
In some applications, biometrics can replace or supplement the existing technology and in others, it is the only viable approach. Expand
Biometric cryptosystems: issues and challenges
TLDR
This work presents various methods that monolithically bind a cryptographic key with the biometric template of a user stored in the database in such a way that the key cannot be revealed without a successful biometric authentication. Expand
Decision-Level Fusion in Fingerprint Verification
TLDR
Four different fingerprint matching algorithms are combined using the proposed scheme to improve the accuracy of a fingerprint verification system and it is shown that a combination of multiple impressions or multiple fingers improves the verification performance by more than 4% and 5%, respectively. Expand
On the Individuality of Fingerprints
TLDR
This work derives an expression which estimates the probability of a false correspondence between minutiae-based representations from two arbitrary fingerprints belonging to different fingers, and shows that contrary to the popular belief, fingerprint matching is not infallible and leads to some false associations. Expand
FingerCode: a filterbank for fingerprint representation and matching
TLDR
This work proposes a filter-based algorithm that uses a bank of Gabor filters to capture both the local and the global details in a fingerprint as a compact 640-byte fixed length FingerCode and shows identification accuracies comparable to the best results of minutiae-based algorithms published in the open literature.
