Abstract [en]

This thesis states that cracks and scars, referred to as Secondary Creases, in fingerprint images can be used as means for aiding and complementing fingerprint recognition, especially in cases where there is not enough clear data to use traditional methods such as minutiae based or correlation techniques. A Gabor filter bank is used to extract areas with linear patterns, where after the Hough Transform is used to identify secondary creases in a r, theta space. The methods proposed for Secondary Crease extraction works well, and provides information about what areas in an image contains usable linear pattern. Methods for comparison is however not as robust, and generates False Rejection Rate at 30% and False Acceptance Rate at 20% on the proposed dataset that consists of bad quality fingerprints. In short, our methods still makes it possible to make use of fingerprint images earlier considered unusable in fingerprint recognition systems.
