As AFIS systems assume more of the work involved in the identification process, the number of those who are intimately familiar with the uniqueness of fingerprint images and the process is diminishing.

Biometric technology is often in the news.

Meeting the demands of multimillion dollar contracts required a significant investment in capital for research and development. There is no universal understanding as to whether it includes finger- prints, or which databases will be checked. The vast majority of Americans who trace their ancestry to a foreign nation have only a distant connection to the country of origin of their surname.

The component scans fingerprint image from user and send the image to web server. Following contract procurement, challenges, and another acquisition cycle, SFIS became operational for the entire state in Learning the classification patterns required automatwd training and guidance until successfully mastered.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation FBI master criminal hie requires hundreds of people to support the database, communication lines, and inquiry processing.

The held of facial recognition has not yet matured to the level where the reality meets all the autoated of its marketing staff. See Chapter 5 for more details on name- and image-based searches. Verify the citizenship of travelers Authenticate traveler identity to establish unrivaled security and protect against fraud. The finger images may be scarred or cut, but can still contain enough information to link the image with the owner.

Each has advantages and disadvantages, supporters and detractors. Identification systems will continue to grow and improve.

Limitations for extensive use of a particular biometric might include the expense of the components, the speed of the processing, or the limitations on daily volumes.

No finger images of the applicant were retained by the identification agency. The AFIS process might have never reached its current level of development had not the federal government initiated two important programs that advanced AFIS systems to their current level.


This method of classihcation also allowed agencies to communicate fingerrpint other agencies regarding a fingerprint record. Environmental factors such as heat and humidity also influence how long the latent print will remain.

If a criminal tenprint record did not meet the quality criteria, it would be returned to the booking agency. Auomated AFIS, people can be fingerprinted and have their criminal history records identiification in a matter of minutes; a mug shot and palm print might be included on the rap sheet returned to the inquiring agency.

The following is a brief overview of each chapter. Plus, some names are ambiguous. Alas, not everyone is completely honest about their identity; nor is everyone completely honest about their personal history, their criminal history in particular. It is also important to realize that the performance results touted by the marketing department of a company offering an AFIS may be different from the performance targets developed by the engineers of that company. In this paper, we introduce a high-performance fingerprint identification system which incorporates with fingerprint classification, multi- server platform, multi-threaded, authentication server and evaluate the performance using a fingerprint database which populatesfingerprunt fingerprints.

Names can be fraudulently changed; faces can be altered, identities hidden, histories covered. Fingerprints are relatively easy and inexpensive to capture either with ink and paper or electronically. The database can then be searched for similar pattern and minutiae configurations for two or more fingers, usually the index fingers or thumbs. In addition to the actual fingerprint cards, identification bureaus also found their hies beginning to hll with disposition information.

For example, the tenprint file contains the images of only two fingers. In addition, some AFIS systems provide only identification information and are not connected to a computerized criminal history file.

One ID room, which housed the master fingerprint hie, contained all 30 million fingerprint cards hied by the Henry System in over 1, hie cabi- nets. An examiner skilled ientification the complex rules of fingerprint classification would look at the pattern using a reticule like the one pictured in Figure 1.

If the booking agency had to rely on the mail to send identificatioon card and receive the results, this process could be quite lengthy. Resources in personnel and capital, however, are not limitless. Read our whitepapers, case studies, infographics, press releases etc.


They require the same maintenance that other computer systems require, and are subject to the same threats to security and database corruption that other information systems share. Autlmated other type of search is the one-to-many 1: There is a chapter describing the identification process, one on the history of AFIS, and one on the uniqueness of fingerprints.

Managers must determine whether the costs of having not identified a few pass holders or even misidentifying a few persons fraudulendy using passes, there- fore allowing them entry into the park, justify switching to a more secure and expensive identification process.

Faced with a continually growing record database and recognizing the potential for latent print searches, the San Francisco Police Department, under the direction of Ken Moses, converted records and began electronic searching based on minutiae. Several countries in Central America, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa require that all their adult citizens be fingerprinted, and AFIS systems are used to confirm these identifications.

For the experiment, we configure a distributed database system and identificatiom identification servers.

If a criminal tenprint record did not meet the quality criteria, it would be returned to the booking agency. Managers are constantly striving to find techniques that will provide more and better results with a minimum amount of additional personnel commitment. Different societies will reach different conclusions, but there can be little doubt that both AFIS and ABIS will provide invaluable support for a wide range of law enforcement teams, as they seek to build safer communities and bring to justice all those who pose a threat to the security and well-being of law-abiding citizens.

Many readers have experienced this increased demand for accurate personal identification firsthand when traveling on commercial flights. All of these systems were using proprietary inter- faces or were printing fingerprint cards to be scanned by the AFIS they were next to run on. In addition, more categories of people, such as health care workers, are being fingerprinted.
