Privacy Protection using Two Fingerprints
Fingerprint matching algorithms system is used for protecting fingerprint privacy by combining two different fingerprints into a new Identity. To mix two fingerprints, each fingerprint is decomposed into two different components. In this paper, the authors will preprocess the fingerprints and this preprocessed fingerprint images is mixed with another fingerprint (e.g., from a different finger which is preprocessed); in order to produce a new mixed image that obscures the identity of the original fingerprint. In the enrollment, two fingerprints are captured from two different fingers.
