Experimental analysis of fingerprint techniques: variance and ROC


The objective of this paper is to analyze the fingerprint verification techniques by extracting the features of fingerprints and enhance the fingerprint using image processing techniques to improve the matching percentage. It aims to perform the analysis on the matching results as FAR and FRR. Observe the ROC receiver operating characteristic curves. The method results in more time robust matching and enhance the correlation values between two fingerprints. It is however equally important that the image enhancing process does not suppress distinct features since this would affect identification or verification process negatively leading to false mismatches or in worst case, to false matches. It is observed that enhancing the coherence in the fingerprint images the variance of FMR and FNMR is 0.000259 & 0.71 respectively.
