FVC2006: the Fourth International Fingerprint Verification Competition

FVC2006 competition focuses on fingerprint verification software assessment. A subset of fingerprint impressions acquired with various sensors was provided to registered participants, to allow them to adjust the parameters of their algorithms. Participants were requested to provide enroll and match executable files of their algorithms; the evaluation was conducted at the organizersí facilities using the submitted executable files on a sequestered database, acquired with the same sensors as the training set.
