Hand shape biometry is among the most popular biometrics employed to characterize a person in forensic applications, due to its simplicity of use and acceptance of individuals. However, this modality presents weaknesses which may make system inaccurate. In fact, people from the same family or twins may have related hand features. Therefore, the performance of the hand verification process depends highly on the hand descriptors. In this paper, we propose a new approach for personal verification… CONTINUE READING
