Paper Abstract

Given a query fingerprint, the goal of indexing is to identify and retrieve a set of candidate fingerprints from a large database in order to determine a possible match. This significantly improves the response time of fingerprint recognition systems operating in the identification mode. In this work, we extend the indexing framework based on minutiae triplets by utilizing ridge curve parameters in conjunction with minutiae information to enhance indexing performance. Further, we demonstrate that the proposed technique facilitates the indexing of fingerprint images acquired using different sensors. Experiments on the publicly available FVC database confirm the utility of the proposed approach in indexing fingerprints.
