Biometrics is to identify individuals using physiological or behavioral characteristics, such as finger-print, face, iris, retina, palm-print, etc. Among all the biometric techniques, fingerprint recognition is the most popular method and is successfully used in many applications. Typical fingerprint recognition methods employ feature-based image matching, where minutiae (i.e., ridge ending and ridge bifurcation) are extracted from the registered fingerprint image and the input fingerprint image, and the number of corresponding minutiae pairings between the two images is used to recognize a valid fingerprint image. The feature-based matching provides an effective way of identification for majority of people. However, it has been known that there are a number of people whose fingerprints could not be identified by the feature-based methods due to special skin conditions, where feature points are hard to be extracted by image processing. The ratio of
