A number of biometric techniques have been proposed for personal identification in the past. Among the vision-based ones are face recognition, fingerprint recognition, iris scanning and retina scanning. Voice recognition or signature verification are the most widely known among the non-vision based ones. As signatures continue to play an important role in financial, commercial and legal transactions, truly secured authentication becomes more and more crucial. A signature by an authorized person is considered to be the “seal of approval” and remains the most preferred means of authentication. The method presented in this paper consists of image prepossessing, geometric feature extraction, neural network training with extracted features and verification. A verification stage includes applying the extracted features of test signature to a trained neural network which will classify it as a genuine or forged.
