A fingerprint presentation attacks detector (FPAD) is designed to obtain a certain performance regardless of the targeted user population. However, two recent works on facial traits showed that a PAD system can exploit very useful information from the targeted user population. In this paper, we explored the existence of that kind of information in fingerprints when textural features are adopted. We show by experiments that such features embed not only intrinsic differences of the given fingerprint replica with respect to a generic live fingerprint, but also contains characteristics present in other fingers of the same user, and characteristics extracted directly from spoofs of the targeted fingerprint itself. These interesting evidences could lead to novel developments in the design of future FPADs.

Abstract

A fingerprint presentation attacks detector (FPAD) is designed to obtain a certain performance regardless of the targeted user population. However, two recent works on facial traits showed that a PAD system can exploit very useful information from the targeted user population. In this paper, we explored the existence of that kind of information in fingerprints when textural features are adopted. We show by experiments that such features embed not only intrinsic differences of the given fingerprint replica with respect to a generic live fingerprint, but also contains characteristics present in other fingers of the same user, and characteristics extracted directly from spoofs of the targeted fingerprint itself. These interesting evidences could lead to novel developments in the design of future FPADs.
