Abstract: Biometric identification is an emerging field for personal authentication and has a large number of applications in the field of time attendance system and forensic domain. A variety of biometric traits are available, but among them, hand-based biometrics are more popular because of their ease of use and better performance. A lot of literature is available on fingerprint identification but it is observed that fingerprints are always not a reliable source of information to be captured from the crime scene to identify suspects. Therefore, it is required to use some other hand-based biological trait such as finger knuckle print (back side of finger joint skin pattern) in order to identify the suspect. This paper proposed a finger knuckle image-based person identification. The performance of the proposed biometric system is compared with the well-established fingerprint-based authentication system. The experiments were performed on the benchmark dataset like PolyU finger knuckle print dataset and FVC2002 fingerprint dataset. The experimental results show that the performance of the proposed algorithm leads over many fingerprint-based identification systems. The proposed algorithm can also be used to design finger knuckle image-based biometric systems instead of fingerprint-based biometric systems.
