Nowadays, conventional identification methods such as driver's license, passport, ATM cards and PIN codes do not meet the demands of this wide scale connectivity. Automated biometrics in general, and automated fingerprint authentication in particular, provide efficient solutions to these modern identification problems. Fingerprints have been used for many centuries as a means of identifying people. The fingerprints of individual are unique and are stay unchanged during the life time. Fingerprint matching techniques can be placed into two categories, minutiae-based and correlation based. Minutiae-based techniques first find minutiae points and then map their relative placement on the 1 nger. However, there are some difficulties when using this approach. It is difficult to extract the minutiae points accurately when the fingerprint is of low quality. Also this method does not take into account the global pattern of ridges and furrows. The correlation-based method is able to overcome some of the difficulties of the minutiae-based approach. However, it has some of its own shortcomings. Correlation-based techniques require the precise location of a registration point and are affected by image translation and rotation. The pre-processing and postprocessing of the fingerprint extraction will be shown via GUT (graphical user interface) in the final stage.
