Unimodal biometric systems often face significant limitations due to sensitivity to noise intraclass variability and other factors. Multimodal biometric systems seek to alleviate some of these problems by providing multiple pieces of evidence of the same identity. However, the multimodal biometric system is limited to the time constraints due to its multiple processing stages. To overcome these limitations this paper presents a fast multimodal verification system by using the dynamic regions of the fingerprint image and enhanced iris segmentation method. The multimodal system is fused using rank level fusion at the verification stage. The performance of the biometric system shows improvement in the False Acceptance Rate (FAR) and Equal Error Rate (EER) curves. Furthermore, the time taken for the training and verification phase has a reduction of 15% when compared with the existing system tested on the slow processing mobile devices.
