The handwritten signature verification system being a part of the developed multimodal biometric banking stand is presented. The hardware component of the solution is described with a focus on the signature acquisition and on verification procedures. The signature is acquired employing an accelerometer and a gyroscope built-in the biometric pen plus pressure sensors for the assessment of the proper pen grip and then the signature verification method based on adapted Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) method is applied. Hitherto achieved FRR and FAR measures for the verification based exclusively on the biometric pen sensors and for the comparison on the parameters retrieved from the signature scanning pad are compared.
