Abstract: -Fingerprint Verification is the most reliable and feasible methods of person identification. The only problem with functionality of Fingerprint Verification System is: it depends on the quality of image. The quality of fingerprint image affects by both environment and scanner’s-surface. The Fingerprint Minutiae-Matching is not possible until the quality of fingerprint image improve. The limitation of image processing is that it can only interact with pixel values but not with location of pixels (i.e. Minutiae Points). The only solution to this problem is to select Region of Interest (ROI). In this paper, an effectual Fingerprint Verification System is presented based on ROI. The objective of the research is to study ROI based Fingerprint Minutiae Matching.
