Investigation on Various Finger Print Recognition Techniques in Image Processing

K. Nirmalakumari, T. Revathi, S. Sadhana


Fingerprint Recognition is the process of verifying a match between two human fingerprints. It is the most sophisticated method of all bio-metric techniques. Fingerprint recognition method is varied for different applications.  Fingerprints remain unchanged for lifetime and are unique for each person. In this paper survey is done on fingerprint recognition techniques. Fingerprint recognition or fingerprint authentication refers to the automated method of verifying a match between two human fingerprints. Fingerprint is most popular biometric, and minutiae matching is used for the fingerprint matching. The matching algorithm may use the local or global or the scale invariant information. However, the technique providing fewer false matching with high accuracy consumes a large amount of processing time.
