Biometric system has been actively emerging in various industries for the past few years, and it is continuing to roll to provide higher security features for access control system. Many types of unimodal biometric systems have been developed. However, these systems are only capable to provide low to middle range of security feature. Thus, for higher security feature, the combination of two or more unimodal biometrics (multiple modalities) is required. In this paper, the authors propose a multimodal biometric system for person recognition using hand images and by integrating two different modalities palmprint and Finger-Knuckle-Print (FKP).
