ABSTRACT

The matching accuracy of the fingerprint templates which were generated by our previously proposed data processing method using the fractional Fourier transform (FRT) was analyzed. The minimum error rate (MER) derived from the false acceptance rate (FAR) and the false rejection rate (FRR) is the criterion of the matching accuracy in this study, and was obtained statistically by the peak value of the normalized cross-correlation function between the fingerprint template and the intensity FRT of the subject’s fingerprint. In our analysis, the fingerprint template was obtained as the intensity FRT of one-dimensional (1D) finite rectangular wave by which a line of a real fingerprint image is modeled. Moreover, various modified 1D finite rectangular waves were generated to derive the FAR. Furthermore, the 1D finite rectangular wave with random noise regarded as dirt of a fingerprint and the one with random vanishing ridges regarded as damage of a fingerprint were generated to derive the FRR. As a result, it was clarified that fingerprint templates generated by our data processing method using the FRT could provide high matching accuracy in the fingerprint authentication from the viewpoint of the MER.
