A Fuzzy Approach to Multimodal Biometric Authentication

S.R. Tandan, Shivanee Pandey, Rohit Miri


In the last few years the security of the user’s identity has become of paramount importance. In this paper we investigate the opportunity of using a multimodal biometric system as input of a fuzzy controller designed with the aim of preventing user substitution after the initial authentication process.
