Abstract: In recent years, biometric signature verification (BSV) has been considered with renewed interest with increasing need of security and individual verification and authentication whether in banks, offices, institutions or other commercial organisations. Biometric signature verification is a behavioural biometric technique as a signature signifies unique behaviour of an individual. It can upgrade online banking using online digital systems for signing which cannot be altered or manipulated. Digital signature pads use algorithms to record the features of the signature, which is used to authenticate a signer during a transaction. This paper aims to present a comprehensive literature survey of the most recent research papers on biometric signature verification. It highlights the most important methods and addresses variations in the methods and features that are being taken up in the most recent research in this field along with the possible extensions.
Keywords: biometric authentication; individual authentication; biometric signature verification; BSV; feature extraction; pattern recognition; machine learning; security; online signatures; biometrics; literature review; biometric verification; digital signatures.
