Our research works are concerned with checking the off-line handwritten signature. We propose a base of Tunisian static handwritten signatures. In this paper, we go through the phase of designing the SID-Signature database and its various features. Afterwards, we present the results obtained by this base as part of our system of handwritten-signature verification.
