Biometric user identification is highly topical these days. The most well-represented method is fingerprint identification, to which this study is also dedicated. However, we cannot forget other methods such as scanning the bloodstream, retina and iris, facial recognition, etc. Four reading devices were tested in this study. Tests were carried out both under standard and adverse conditions. Adverse conditions included situations such as cold finger, cooled damp finger, heated finger, soaked…

To have a multimodal biometric system like a combination of fingerprint, retinal prints and so on, will not only avoid problems arising due to hacking of single point data but can also be useful in situations where one parameter cannot be used for one or the other reason.

Fingerprint Identification in Biometric SecuritySystems

This paper deals with the issue of selection of an optimal algorithm for fingerprint matching in order to design a system that matches required specifications in performance and accuracy.

An identity-authentication system using fingerprints

The design and implementation of a prototype automatic identity-authentication system that uses fingerprints to authenticate the identity of an individual is described and an improved minutiae-extraction algorithm is developed that is faster and more accurate than the earlier algorithm.

Biometrics: Personal Identification in Networked Society

This book covers the general principles and ideas of designing biometric-based systems and their underlying tradeoffs, and the exploration of some of the numerous privacy and security implications of biometrics.

Altered Fingerprints: Analysis and Detection

Experimental results show the feasibility of the proposed approach in detecting altered fingerprints and highlight the need to further pursue this problem.

Latent Palmprint Matching

This work proposes a latent-to-full palmprint matching system that is needed in forensics and uses minutiae as features and a robust algorithm to estimate ridge direction and frequency in palmprints facilitates minutia extraction even in poor quality palmprints.
