Paper Abstract

Different hand-derived biometric traits have been used for user authentication in many commercial systems. In this paper we have investigated the possibility of using a new biometric trait, the knuckle, for user authentication. Knuckle regions are extracted from the hand images and correlation methods are used for the purpose of verification. Experimental results on a data set of 125 people show that the knuckle is a viable biometric trait, which can be used as an alternative to finger and palm prints or in conjunction with them.
