Fingerprint recognition is one of the most popular methods used for identification with greater degree of success. The fingerprint has unique characteristics called minutiae, which are points where a curve track finishes, intersect or branches off. In this work a novel method for Fingerprint recognition is considered using a combination of Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) and Gabor Filters to enhancement the image. The proposed method involves combination of Gabor filter and Frequency domain… 


An enhancement algorithm using Gabor filter based matching to capture both local and global details in a fingerprint as a compact fixed-length Fingercode is introduced and based on the result, it gives higher accuracy and recognition rate.
