Signature verification is the process used to recognize and individual's hand - written signature. The process of verifying signature is cumbersome in practice. This is due to the fact that signature is a behavioral biometric: it differs from fingerprint, face, iris recognition, because these are based on the physical properties of the human beings. Many systems are available to verify the signatures in bank cheques. In this paper, the authors verify the offline signatures by taking a boundary of the entire signature and do the pixel comparison. Detection process is done after data acquisition and preprocessing. Experimental result shows that 50% of accurate matching with the existing one from the database. Signature is acquired using a scanner.
