Fingerprint-Based Recognition

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors’ abstract.] Biometric recognition refers to the authentication of an individual based on biometric traits such as face, iris, fingerprint, or voice. Fingerprint-based authentication has the longest history and has been adopted in both forensic and civilian applications. Advances in fingerprint capture technology have resulted in large-scale civilian applications such as the US-VISIT program, but these systems often encounter difficulties due to noise factors in operating environments. An overview of fingerprint-based recognition is given, and research opportunities for making these systems perform more effectively are discussed.
