Abstract— For person identification and forensic security, the fingerprint and the palmprint are the common authentic biometrics methods. Biometric system which is essentially a pattern recognition system makes use of biometric traits to recognize the person. This paper proposes to exploit the minutiae based fingerprint and palmprint identification using Hierarchical Minutiae Matching Method. This method decomposes the matching step into several stages and rejects many false fingerprints or palm prints on different stages, thus it can save much time while preserving a high identification rate.

Keywords— Biometrics, fingerprint, palmprint verification, minutiae, hierarchical structure
