Contemporary fingerprint system uses solid flat sensor which requires contact of the finger on a platen surface. This often results in several problems such as image deformation, durability weakening in the sensor, latent fingerprint issues which can lead to forgery and hygienic problems. On the other hand, biometric characteristics cannot be changed; therefore, the loss of privacy is permanent if they are ever compromised. Coupled with template protection mechanism, a touch-less fingerprint verification system is further provoked. In this issue, a secure end-to-end touch-less fingerprint verification system is presented. The fingerprint image captured with a digital camera is first pre-processed via the proposed pre-processing algorithm to reduce the problems appear in the image. Then, Multiple Random Projections-Support Vector Machine (MRP-SVM) is proposed to secure fingerprint template while improving system performance.
