A system has been developed for person identification based on hand images. The images of the left hand of the subjects are captured by a flatbed scanner in an unconstrained pose. The silhouettes of hands are registered to a fixed pose, which involves both rotation and translation of the hand and, separately, of the individual fingers. Independent component features of the hand silhouette images are used for recognition. The classification performance is found to be very satisfactory and it is shown that, at least for groups of one hundred subjects, hand-based recognition becomes a viable and secure access control scheme.
