Fingerprint matching is an important and challenging problem in fingerprint recognition. Even though so many different methods are there, it has been learned from studies that a better feature extraction technique may leads to very good result. A biometric system is essentially a pattern recognition system that operates by acquiring biometric data from an individual, extracting a feature set from the acquired data, and comparing this feature set against the template set in the database. Depending on the application context, a biometric system may operate in identification mode.
