  journal={IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems},
The deployment of fingerprint sensors is increasingly becoming common and has now gained high user acceptance. [] Key Method The proposed method of liveness detection is based on the principle of pulse oximetry and involves the source of light originating from a probe at two wavelengths. The light is partly absorbed by haemoglobin, by amounts which differ depending on whether it is saturated with oxygen or deoxygenated haemoglobin.
