To meet today’s demands for constructing even better biometric systems of human identification, a few fingerprint matching techniques are presented in this paper. One can also find here a short description of fingerprint image pre-processing and the minutiae extraction scheme used in our research. Because there is still a need to find the best matching algorithm, preliminary research was conducted to compare quality differences and answer times between the analysed methods for a prepared on-line system.
