Fingerprint is most popular and common biometric trait used for authentication. The fingerprint is a physiological biometric characteristic to identify person. Fingerprint recognition is the problem of searching a fingerprint in the reference database to find a fingerprint that matches a given fingerprint. For enhancing the performance and accuracy of biometric fingerprint recognition system one of the faster technique spiral is evaluated for robustness, accuracy & speed with varying constraints. To test robustness of authentication mechanism, different noises are added to original fingerprint images and found that speed & accuracy of spiral is remarkable but not robustness.
