Fingerprint Recognition

Fingerprint recognition refers to the method of identifying or confirming the identity of an individual person based on the comparison of two fingerprints – one is taken from the user in real time in the authentication process and the other was taken from the user at the enrollment process and saved in the user’s account in the database.

Fingerprint recognition is one of the most well known biometrics, and it is by far the most used biometric solution for authentication on computerized systems. The reasons for fingerprint recognition being so popular are the ease of acquisition, established use and acceptance when compared to other biometrics.
