Fingerprint recognition is a powerful tool to combat identity theft, which is costing the South African economy billions of rands. In an effort to make fingerprint recognition accessible for use by more South African companies to help prevent fraud resulting from identity theft, CSIR researchers have developed a software library with functions required to perform fingerprint recognition. Areas that require improvement have been identified and development continues in order to optimise the fingerprint recognition functions.
