Abstract Fingerprint alteration is a type of presentation attack in which the attacker strives to avoid identification, e.g. at border control or in forensic investigations. As a countermeasure, fingerprint alteration detection aims to automatically discover the occurrence of such attacks by classifying fingerprint images as ’normal’ or ’altered’. In this paper, we propose four new features for improving the performance of fingerprint alteration detection modules. We evaluate the usefulness of these features on a benchmark and compare them to four existing features from the literature. © Copyright 2015 IEEE - All rights reserved.
