Abstract: In order to overcome the problem of low throughput and time-consuming of traditional fingerprint minutiae matching methods, a new convolutional-deep neural network is proposed for parallel fingerprint minutiae matching. This method realises the preprocessing of the initial image through four steps: normalisation, image enhancement, parallel thinning and image segmentation. The convolutional-deep neural network is constructed from convolution kernel, convolution layer, pooling layer and full connection layer to extract minutiae of fingerprint image. Through feature minutiae matching, local matching and global matching, the matching results of fingerprint parallel nodes are obtained. The experimental results show that compared with the traditional matching method, the fingerprint matching throughput of convolutional-deep neural network is increased by 25%, and the matching time is saved by about 8 seconds.

Keywords: convolution network; deep neural network; fingerprint minutiae; parallel matching; minutiae matching.
