Abstract : A biometric identity verification system tries to verify user identities by comparing some sort of behavioral or physiological trait of the user to a previously stored sample of the trait.

The area of biometrics can therefore be denied as the task of automatically recognizing a person using his/her distinguishing traits like fingerprints, voice patterns, iris patterns, keystroke dynamics etc.

This project implements an verification system based on fingerprints. The input fingerprint pattern is checked for a matching in a database of fingerprints.

The input image undergoes enhancement and thinning.

The minutiae points (the points in a fingerprint image where the fingerprint ridges either end or split up into two new ridges) which forms the basis of the recognition algorithm, is retrieved and the matching is done.A biometric identity verification system tries to verify user identities by comparing some sort of behavioral or physiological trait of the user to a previously stored sample of the trait.
