Description


A invited paper "Personal authentication using hand-geometry and palmprint features: the state of the art" based on our biometric identification system, was presented at the workshop Biometrics - Challenges arising from theory to practice (BCTP), at the conference International conference on pattern recognition (ICPR) 2004. St. Catharine's College, Cambridge, United Kingdom, 23 - 26 August, 2004.

Abstract


In this paper we present an overview of the fundamentals of personal authentication based on hand-geometry measurements and palmprint features. Unimodal and multimodal hand-based systems and technologies are presented, and various levels of fusion for hand-based biometric systems are discussed. Finally, a description of the design and development of a multimodal personal authentication system based on the fusion of hand-geometry and palmprint features at the matching-score level is given.
