Abstract

Unattended fingerprint identification systems need to reject input attempts by a replica. Previously, we proposed detecting the color changes of a finger during an input action as a signature of liveliness. To improve its reliability, a dual-LED imaging system is investigated. It employs two LEDs with peak emissions at 530 and 630  nm to cover the spectral ranges where live fingers show characteristic changes. Using nine types of replicas and the live fingers of 42 participants, we have recorded and analyzed 153 input trials. The two groups of data are successfully separated by some defined criteria.
