A Survey on State of the Art Methods of Fingerprint Recognition

Authors(2) :-Urmi A. Soni, Mahesh M. Goyani

Fingerprint recognition is one of the most well-known and publicized biometrics for personal identification and authentication. With the advancement of technology and for security purposes in various civilian, defence and commercial applications, fingerprint recognition is studied since a long time. Since second millennium BCE when fingerprints were used as signature, researchers have done studies on different aspects and features of fingerprint. This paper specifies a literature survey of the widely used techniques in fingerprint recognition system. Some of the renowned techniques of feature extraction and matching modules are discussed in deep.
