The fingerprint verification, means where "Verification" implies a user matching a fingerprint against a single fingerprint associated with the identity that the user claims. Biometrics can be classified into two types Behavioral (signature verification, keystroke dynamics, etc.) and Physiological (iris characteristics, fingerprint, etc.). Finger Print and signature is one of the first few biometrics used even before computers. Finger Print verification is widely studied and discussed using two approaches. On-line approach and offline approach. Offline systems are more applicable and easy to use in comparison with on-line systems in many parts of the world however it is considered more difficult than on-line verification due to the lack of dynamic information.
