Description


A paper "A multimodal biometric-based user-identification system for internet use", based on our Biometric identification system, was published in magazine IEE Proceedings Vision, Image & Signal Processing, Vol. 150, No. 6, December 2003., ISSN 1350-145X, pp. 409-416.

Abstract


Internet security services, such as confidentiality, authentication, integrity, and non-repudiation, rely on public-key cryptography services as well as on techniques to identify the user. Traditional user-identification techniques, such as passwords, personal identification numbers, card keys, etc., cannot differentiate between an authorized person and a fraudulent impostor. Biometrics is an emerging technology that identifies users by their physical and/or behavioural characteristics, and so inherently requires that the users to be identified are physically present at the point of identification. This paper describes the design and development of a prototype, scanner-based system for the automatic identification of an individual based on the fusion of palm-print, finger and hand-geometry features at the matching-score level. The test performance, FAR = 0.0 % and FRR = 0.2 %, suggests that the system can be used in medium/high-security internet environments.
