Fingerprint has remained a very vital index for human recognition. In the field of security, series of Automatic Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS) have been developed. One of the indices for evaluating the contributions of these systems to the enforcement of security is the degree with which they appropriately verify or identify input fingerprints. This degree is generally determined by the quality of the fingerprint images and the efficiency of the algorithm. Finger print authentication technique along with a PIN number is used to provide more security.
