Abstract: The advent of biometrics as a mean of authentication for financial institutes, government agencies, and personal devices caused significant acceleration in the realisation of security solutions. Increasing deployments and affordable hardware components corroborate this statement. Though passwords have commendable user convenience but suffer from serious issues, which have evolved biometrics into highly secure and reliable authentication methods. Every biometric technique should be easy to learn, impel to use and user convenient. In this paper, we have proposed to analyse the usability of fingerprint dynamics by performing user preference-based experimentations. This is also followed by the study of various aspects of fingerprint dynamics as an authentication system. Results are reported for the usability trials which includes data collection from 348 participants, followed by comprehensive statistical analysis. User preferences were also measured using attitude questionnaires. As an indicator of system performance results of authentication experiments are also reported.
