Extraction of Singular Points from Directional Fields of Fingerprints

  title={Extraction of Singular Points from Directional Fields of Fingerprints},
  author={Asker M. Bazen and Sabih H. Gerez},
Biometric identification is an emerging subject in applications like high-security wireless access and secure transactions across computer networks. Fingerprints are easy to use and provide relatively good performance. Furthermore, fingerprint sensors are cheap and can be integrated easily in wireless hardware. In this paper, methods are presented for the estimation of a high resolution directional field from fingerprints. It is shown how, from the directional field, very accurate detection of… CONTINUE READING
