Biometric systems are playing a key role in the multitude of applications and placed at the center of debate in the scientific research community. Among the numerous biometric systems, handwritten signature verification has got keen interest over the last three decades. Handwritten signature verification is the behavioral bio-metric system that discriminates the genuine signature from the pre-stored known signatures. It has been researched in the number of application areas like banking…
