Project description

Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg
Example for an 3D-scan of the fingertip (Source: BSI)

The fingerprint in the passport or the identification at the entrance into security zones of buildings have become the target of criminals - the aim is the pretence of a false identity or the obscuration of one 's own identity: skin transplants, stickers with the imprint of other persons or the removal of the visible skin ridges have been observed. Therefore, new methods and procedures are required to authenticate persons fast and reliably.
