One of the biggest challenges facing society is confirming the true identity of a person. Fingerprint identification may be preferred over traditional methods (e.g. passwords, smart-cards) because its information is virtually impossible to steal. Recently, a new trend has been opened by using swarm intelligence techniques in biometric field. Therefore, two swarm intelligence techniques (PSO and firefly) are used in this paper in order to build fingerprints authentication system. The performance of the proposed system has been successfully tested, and a comparison between PSO and firefly swarm techniques is done.
