Nowadays the question of identifying a person or verifying his/hers identity assumes a major role in many applications. Application examples include border control or the access to a company’s facilities. To circumvent the limitations of traditional identity recognition mechanisms (e.g., passwords, or ID cards), the modern security control procedures often exploit people biometrics. This paper proposes a biometric recognition algorithm, based on the texture analysis of finger surfaces
