Personal identification approaches using finger knuckle patterns are receiving increasing attention in the biometrics literature. Several approaches have been explored and these methods consider knuckle patterns as textured-like patterns, similar to the iris, and illustrate promising results. However much of the law-enforcement and forensic analysis for hand biometrics still relies on recovery and matching of minutiae patterns which has matured in last several decades. This is largely due to… CONTINUE READING
