Biometrics is one of the biggest tendencies in human identification. The fingerprint is the most widely used biometric. However, considering the automatic fingerprint recognition a completely solved problem is a common mistake. There are many different algorithms being used to get this accomplished. The global level structures consist of many ridges to form some specific shape like arch, loop, and whorl. Local level structures are called minutiae, which further classified as either endpoints or bifurcations. Either of which can be used to identify the fingerprint. The most popular and extensively used method is the minutiae-based method.
