In current society, reliable identification and verification of individuals are becoming more and more necessary tasks for many fields, not only in police environment, but also in civilian applications, such as access control or financial transactions. Biometric systems are used nowadays in these fields, offering greater convenience and several advantages over traditional security methods based on something that you know (password) or something that you have (keys). In this paper, we propose an efficient online personal identification system based on Multi-Spectral Palmprint (MSP) images using Contourlet Transform (CT) and Gabor Filter (GF) response. In this study, the spectrum image is characterized by the contourlet coefficients sub-bands. Then, we use the Hidden Markov Model (HMM) for modeling the observation vector. In addition, the same spectrum is filtered by the Gabor filter. The real and imaginary responses of the filtering image are used to create another observation vector. Subsequently, the two sub-systems are integrated in order to construct an efficient multi-modal identification system based on matching score level fusion. Our experimental results show the effectiveness and reliability of the proposed method, which brings both high identification and accuracy rate.
