Found in: IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
By Soweon Yoon, Jianjiang Feng,A. K. Jain
Issue Date:March 2012
pp. 451-464
The widespread deployment of Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS) in law enforcement and border control applications has heightened the need for ensuring that these systems are not compromised. While several issues related to fingerprint sys...
Automatic Detection of Altered Fingerprints
Found in: Computer
By A. K. Jain, Soweon Yoon
Issue Date:January 2012
pp. 79-82
A new algorithm detects changes to fingerprints due to mutilation and other similar measures criminals use to evade identification. This Web extra video features Karl Ricanek of the University of North Carolina Wilmington providing an overview of the 2011 ...
Latent fingerprint enhancement via robust orientation field estimation
Found in: Biometrics, International Joint Conference on
By Soweon Yoon,Jianjiang Feng,Anil K. Jain
Issue Date:October 2011
pp. 1-8
Latent fingerprints, or simply latents, have been considered as cardinal evidence for identifying and convicting criminals. The amount of information available for identification from latents is often limited due to their poor quality, unclear ridge struct...
