Assessing Fingerprint Individuality Using EPIC

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] This article presents a class of distributions of fingerprint features and a methodology for assessing fingerpring uniqueness using a Bayesian MCMC framework. Model flexibility is demonstrated with real ingerprint examples. A simulation procedure based on the previously described models determines Evidence of a Paired Impostor Correspondence (EPIC), which is used to measure fingerprint individuality.
