    The article presents six myths about biometric technology. The first myth that needs to be dispelled is that biometrics is a modern-day idea. The technology can actually be traced right back to Egyptian times, when workers building the great pyramids were not only identified by their name, but...

    Conventional algorithms for fingerprint recognition are mainly based on minutiae information. However, the small number of minutiae in partial fingerprints is still a challenge in fingerprint matching. In fingerprint recognition systems, there are frequently appeared partial fingerprints, such...

    A definition of the term "Automated Fingerprint Identification System" (AFIS) is presented. It refers to a biometric identification (ID) methodology that uses digital imaging technology to obtain, store, and analyze fingerprint data. It is stated that the AFIS was originally used by the U.S....

    Using biometrics to verify a person's identity has several advantages over the present practices of personal identification numbers (PINs) and passwords. Minutiae-based automated identification systems are more popular, but they are more computationally complex and time consuming. In this paper...
