Abstract

In this study problems of using biometric authentication methods for physical access systems are analyzed. Possibilities for applying biometric authentication methods are also examined. It is suggested that fingerprint recognition methods could be applied to finger vein recognition. The experiment shows that method for fingerprint matching using hybrid shape and orientation descriptor finger vein recognition could be used in finger vein based physical access systems. Finger vein image quality has low impact for this method. Ill. 6, bibl. 21, tabl. 3 (in English; abstracts in English and Lithuanian).
