To uniquely recognizing humans based upon one or more intrinsic physical or behavioral traits is called as Biometrics. Biometrics is one of the biggest tendencies in human identification. The fingerprint is the most widely used biometric. However considering the automatic fingerprint recognition a completely solved problem is a common mistake. The most popular and extensively used method is the minutiae-based method (minutia are specific points in a finger image. It is the unique, measurable physical characteristics scanned as input and stored for matching by biometric systems. For fingerprints, minutiae include the starting and ending points of ridges, bifurcations and ridge junctions among other features). There are many different algorithms being used to get this accomplished. Here we have discussed soft computing tools namely fuzzy logic and neural network and how they can be used in fingerprint recognition.
