Fingerprint authentication has garnered widespread adoption due to its convenience and reliability in verifying individual identities. However, traditional fingerprint recognition systems are susceptible to spoofing attacks, where adversaries can replicate fingerprints using various means to gain unauthorized access. In response, multispectral imaging has emerged as a promising technology to enhance the security of fingerprint authentication systems.
This paper presents a comprehensive evaluation of the effectiveness of multispectral imaging in fingerprint authentication. We delve into the underlying principles of multispectral imaging, which involves capturing fingerprint images across different spectral bands, ranging from ultraviolet to infrared. By analyzing the unique spectral characteristics of skin and sub-surface features, multispectral imaging offers a robust defense against common spoofing techniques, such as artificial replicas and latent prints.
