Biometric is a technique or a technology, which can be used to identify a person based on behavioral and physiological characteristics. Different biometric techniques are fingerprint recognition; palm recognition; face recognition; iris; voice signature; user-IDs and passwords. But fingerprint is one of the most popular biometric techniques and identification of fingerprint recognition has been done by considering its unique characteristics like: core point, delta points and bifurcation points. This paper is to perform comparative study on various fingerprint recognition methods such as correlation based, minutiae based and other local, global methods.
