Abstract

The foundations of modern fingerprint recognition were established by the research of Sir Francis Galton and Sir Edward Henry at the end of 19th century. Two fundamentally important conclusions were reached through extensive experiments on different age groups within different races (Halici et al. [35]):
  • Fingerprints of a person are permanent, i.e., once the fingerprint is fully formed by the seventh month of fetal life, it won’t change naturally;

  • Fingerprints of individuals are unique, i.e., no two fingerprints are ever found to be exactly the same.
