Hi everyone,

I am going to try to set up a fingerprint authentication system. I am looking for an openly available fingerprint database to use for feature extraction testing and authentication/rejection testing.

I have found a couple databases available online but they all only have one fingerprint for each subject (right thumb, right index, left index, etc.). This has posed me problems when trying to test authentication as there is no second fingerprint that a test fingerprint can be authenticated as. Can anyone point me to a database where each subject has multiple fingerprints for each finger?

this one has 8 samples per finger for 4 persons.

@StevenPuttemans , where was it taken from ?

It was from some small Japanse dataset I found during that time, but which is now integrated into this challenge. It has sets for training and testing.

Just confirmed with the textbook: This dataset can be downloaded from the FVC2002 competition website released by the University of Bologna. The website contains four databases of fingerprints available for public.
