Classification of Fingerprints Captured Using Optical Coherence Tomography
MetadataShow full item record
We propose a technique for analysis of fingerprints scanned free-air (not pressed against a glass) with Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). Fingerprints from the surface and subdermal parts of the finger are extracted from a 2 GB volumetric scan in cca. 2 s using our specialized technique and GPU acceleration on GeForce GTX 980. The technique provides fingerprints that perform with promising error rates that demonstrate the potential of the OCT for improved fingerprint identification, as well as its potential for prevention of biometric spoofing (PAD).
