Title
(EN) Method and device for determining a similarity value between minutiae templates
Abstract
(EN)

Embodiment of the invention provide a method and a device for determining a similarity value between a first template and a second template. A first cluster characteristic for each first cluster of a plurality of first clusters is determined, wherein each first cluster includes a plurality of first minutiae comprised in the first minutiae template. A second cluster characteristic for each second cluster of a plurality of second clusters is determined, wherein each second cluster includes a plurality of second minutiae comprised in the second minutiae template. The similarity value between the first minutiae template and the second minutiae template is determined based on the first cluster characteristics and the second cluster characteristics.
