Authentication based on handwritten signature is the most accepted authentication system based on biometry because it is easy to use and because the use of signature is part of our habits. In the field of authentication by on-line signature, we present a method to reduce the amount of data to be stored for pattern comparison and that needs few processing. Many systems described in literature keep the whole signature?s points even if it is not recommended, even advised against it, in order to avoid forgers to obtain a signature?s pattern. The proposed method for data reduction was evaluated with respect to a method of curve comparison very often used for authentication by on-line handwritten signature: Dynamic Time Warping (DTW). After we have presented several reduction methods of signature data, we show the results obtained with each one. In order to evaluate their efficiency, the results were compared to those obtained with the whole coarse data points of the signature.
