Fingerprint Identification in Biometric Security Systems

Mary Lourde R. and Dushyant Khosla

Abstract—Perhaps the most important application of accurate personal identification is securing limited access systems from malicious attacks. Among all the presently employed biometric techniques, fingerprint identification systems have received the most attention due to the long history of fingerprints and their extensive use in forensics. 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. Two competing algorithms were compared against a common database using MATLAB simulations.
