11 pagesDate: June 11, 2024


Fingerprint recognition has long been a cornerstone of biometric authentication due to its uniqueness and reliability. However, the rise of sophisticated spoofing techniques poses a significant challenge to the security of fingerprint-based systems. In response, researchers and developers have turned to 3D imaging technology as a promising solution to enhance fingerprint spoofing prevention. This article investigates the profound impact of 3D imaging on the security landscape of biometric authentication, specifically focusing on its role in mitigating fingerprint spoofing attacks.
The discussion begins by elucidating the vulnerabilities inherent in traditional 2D fingerprint recognition systems, highlighting the ease with which spoofing attacks can be orchestrated using simple materials such as latex or gelatin molds. Subsequently, the article delves into the principles of 3D imaging and its ability to capture the intricate three-dimensional features of fingerprints, thus rendering traditional spoofing methods ineffective.
