Abstract
Fingerprint recognition applications as means of identity authentication that deals with accuracy and security are becoming more acceptable in areas such as financial transactions, access to secured buildings, commercial driver license and identity check at entry borders, to mention a few. This paper presented a new approach of using two patterns of the same person, intelligently fused, to form a new unique pattern of the same person. The Laplacian pyramid (LP) level 7 image fusion approach and the logical "OR" and logical "AND" operators for the decision fusion approach were tested with respect to their performance in accuracy, security and processing speed of the recognition system. The concept of receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve to indicate any improvement in accuracy and security of the process was used. Finally, an overall comparison and analysis of performance between traditional systems that used a single pattern and our proposed system that used two fused fingerprint patterns in the biometric system was presented.
