A New and Effective Approach for Fingerprint Recognition by Using Feed Forward Back Propagation Neural Network

Recognition of person by means of biometric characteristics is an emerging phenomenon in modern society. Fingerprint recognition is one of the oldest forms of biometric identification. It has been used for over a century because of their uniqueness and consistency over time. Nowadays it is one of the most important and popular biometric technology mainly because of the inherent ease in acquisition, distinctiveness, persistence and high matching accuracy rate. It is one of the most successful method used for person identification, which takes an advantage of the fact that, fingerprint of every individual is considered to be unique. No two people have the same set of fingerprints. Even identical twins do not have identical fingerprints.
