Evaluating software-based fingerprint liveness detection using Convolutional Networks and Local Binary Patterns

08/03/2015 ∙ by Rodrigo Frassetto Nogueira, et al. ∙ 0

With the growing use of biometric authentication systems in the past years, spoof fingerprint detection has become increasingly important. In this work, we implement and evaluate two different feature extraction techniques for software-based fingerprint liveness detection: Convolutional Networks with random weights and Local Binary Patterns. Both techniques were used in conjunction with a Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier. Dataset Augmentation was used to increase classifier's performance and a variety of preprocessing operations were tested, such as frequency filtering, contrast equalization, and region of interest filtering. The experiments were made on the datasets used in The Liveness Detection Competition of years 2009, 2011 and 2013, which comprise almost 50,000 real and fake fingerprints' images. Our best method achieves an overall rate of 95.2 improvement of 35 published results.
