Fingerprints have been an invaluable tool for law enforcement and forensics for over a century, motivating research into automated fingerprint-based identification in the early 1960s common and reliable biometric for automatic personal identification is fingerprint. Indeed, due to their uniqueness and unchangeability, fingerprints have widely used by many police agencies as a trusted biometric for personal identify localizationation. However, the fingerprint recognition that aims to find a match for a probe fingerprint in the database of enrolled prints is extremely long because of an enormous number of personal records in the database (e.g. there are more than millions of US`s criminal records). Classification can help to accelerate the fingerprint recognition.
