Title: PFTII Report Plain and Rolled Fingerprint Matching with Vendor Proprietary Template
Published: October 26, 2011
Abstract: This report is an extension of the ,Two Finger Matching with Vendor SDK MatchesŠ [1] which evaluated the accuracy of matching two plain fingers (right index and left index) with vendor proprietary fingerprint templates. This study is based on NIST‰s ongoing proprietary fingerprint template (PFTII) program which evaluates matching two plain index fingers of two datasets and six fingers (both thumbs, index fingers, and middle fingers) of one dataset. The fingerprint matches are performed between different types of print impressions: plain vs. plain images (p2p), plain vs. rolled images (p2r), and rolled vs. rolled (r2r). The vendor template size, the timings for template extractions, and comparisons are examined and summarized.
