Fingerprint Recognition is one of the most well known biometrics, and it is by far the most used biometric solution for authentication on computerized systems. This technology has traditionally been used by law enforcement agencies around the globe to identify individuals. It is also necessary to know the structure and properties of human skin in order to successfully employ some of the imaging technologies. This usually involves an individual pressing one or two fingers or finger and thumb against a reader to verify that they are who they say they are. This technology is widely used for access control both physical and logical applications.
