Fingerprint reader is an emerging technology, increasing at a tremendous rate due to its function that allows the fast identification and secure verification capabilities. This technology enables to recognize individual users without need of any password and the card swipes and works in a different ways rather than the swipe cards and other identification technologies. By using this technology, we can recognize and authenticate individuals based on the who they are, instead of the what they know, like their password and pins and what they possess, like keys and swipe cards. Fingerprint technology having important role with security application and e-commerce due to their ability of identifying and providing access to user through finger. This technology can be implemented in the various areas like Voters Identification, Passport verification, Population Census, Driver’s license, and Professional ID and there data can be placed on cloud by using Internet of Things (IoT). If cloud-based technology incorporated with fingerprint identification and is properly used, then it has potential to create a highly secured verification environment. In this research, we have done extensive literature survey for future research areas in this field.
