Abstract

As shown in Figure 1.6(a), in an identification system, the input is a query fingerprint, the system tries to answer the question: are there any fingerprints in the database, which resemble the query fingerprint? In this chapter, we are dealing with the identification problem. We present a comparison of two key approaches for fingerprint identification. These approaches are based on:
  1. 1)

    Classification followed by verification;

     
  2. 2)

    Indexing followed by verification.
