Standard surface fingerprint scanners are vulnerable to counterfeiting attacks and also failure due to skin damage and distortion. Thus a high security and damage resistant means of fingerprint acquisition is needed, providing scope for new approaches and technologies. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a high resolution imaging technology that can be used to image the human fingertip and allow for the extraction of a subsurface fingerprint. Being robust toward spoofing and damage, the subsurface fingerprint is an attractive solution. However, the nature of the OCT scanning process induces speckle: a correlative and multiplicative noise. Six speckle reducing filters for the digital enhancement of OCT fingertip scans have been evaluated. The optimized Bayesian non-local means algorithm improved the structural similarity between processed and reference images by 34%, increased the signal-to-noise ratio, and yielded the most promising visual results. An adaptive wavelet approach, originally designed for ultrasound imaging, and a speckle reducing anisotropic diffusion approach also yielded promising results. A reformulation of these in future work, with an OCT-speckle specific model, may improve their performance.
