Many biometric characteristics are used to validate identity, including hand and face geometry, retinal scans, voice recognition, and fingerprint analysis. Because no two fingerprints have ever been proved identical, fingerprint matching is among the most popular and accurate biometric techniques used for identification purposes.

A popular and reliable way to compare fingerprints is to analyse the minutiae of the fingerprint. To do so, a system must first capture the image of a fingerprint and process the image to make it easy for image analysis. After the analysis, the minutiae will be extracted and saved in a template format. The system must then store the data of the minutiae to be used for future comparison.
