Authors(4) :-Rakesh Yadhav G B, Choodarathnakara A L, Harshitha B K, Mohammed Zakirulla M

In today’s society, the use of electronic commerce, transaction of monetary assets and daily use of email is rapidly increasing. Along with the increased ease of purchasing and selling, there is also an increase in fraud mostly from false identification. Solutions to this problem have been in the field of biometrics, using the person’s body as a form of identification. In particular, the uniqueness of fingerprints has made them very popular among law enforcement, banking establishments and commerce. Fingerprint identification using manual procedures has become a very common approach, but it has number of limitations like very low rate of positive identification, time consumption, mutilation of paper slips used for fingerprinting, etc.., rendering them ineffective. This has resulted in the dire need of speeding up the procedure and increasing its reliability by the use of computerized process. This paper addressing different procedures involved in acquisition of the fingerprint, operations of pre-processing to make the fingerprint compatible for feature extraction, feature extraction and finally authentication are discussed along with their associated difficulties.
