Abstract: - Finger vein is a promising biometric pattern for personal identification and authentication in terms of its security and convenience. Finger vein has gained much attention among researchers to combine accuracy, universality and cost efficiency. This study proposes an analysis of different techniques for finger-vein feature extraction. The fundamental principle, various feature extraction techniques and performance evaluation metrics are extensively analyzed. Most of the existing work is systematically described and compared in three parts, i.e., finger-vein image acquisition, pre-processing and feature extraction. According to the available work in literatures and commercial utilization experiences, finger vein biometrics ensures higher performance and spoofing resistance. It has reached an unparallel level of security, efficiency and reliable choice of high precision among the biometrics techniques.
