Finger-vein-based biometric recognition technology has recently attracted the attention of both academia and industry because of its robustness against presentation attacks and the convenience of the acquisition process. As a matter of fact, some contactless vein-based recognition systems have already been deployed and commercialized. However, they require the users to keep their hands still over the acquisition device for a few seconds to perform recognition. In this study, we release this constraint and allow users to have their finger vein patterns acquired on the fly. To accomplish this goal, we introduce an ad hoc acquisition architecture capable of capturing the finger vein structure using an array of low-cost cameras, and we propose a recognition framework based on the use of convolutional and recurrent neural networks. To test the proposed approach we acquire a finger vein image dataset, in video format at four different exposure times, from 100 subjects. The obtained experimental results show that, even in a very challenging scenario, the proposed system guarantees high performance levels, up to 99.13% recognition accuracy over the collected database.

Abstract

Finger-vein-based biometric recognition technology has recently attracted the attention of both academia and industry because of its robustness against presentation attacks and the convenience of the acquisition process. As a matter of fact, some contactless vein-based recognition systems have already been deployed and commercialized. However, they require the users to keep their hands still over the acquisition device for a few seconds to perform recognition. In this study, we release this constraint and allow users to have their finger vein patterns acquired on the fly. To accomplish this goal, we introduce an ad hoc acquisition architecture capable of capturing the finger vein structure using an array of low-cost cameras, and we propose a recognition framework based on the use of convolutional and recurrent neural networks. To test the proposed approach we acquire a finger vein image dataset, in video format at four different exposure times, from 100 subjects. The obtained experimental results show that, even in a very challenging scenario, the proposed system guarantees high performance levels, up to 99.13% recognition accuracy over the collected database.
