ABSTRACT Signature is widely used and developed area of research for personal verification and authentication. In this paper Off-line Signature Verification Based on Fusion of Grid and Global Features Using Neural Networks (SVFGNN) is presented. The global and grid features are fused to generate set of features for the verification of signature. The test signature is compared with data base signatures based on the set of features and match/non match of signatures is decided with the help of Neural Network. The performance analysis is conducted on random, unskilled and skilled signature forgeries along with genuine signatures. It is observed that FAR and FRR results are improved in the proposed method compared to the existing algorithm.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper verification of signatures is reviewed and different feature extraction methods with K-NN are compared in order to obtain the optimized high performance signature verification for improving the identification rate. The task of signature verification is to judge whether an input signature is a genuine or a forged. This task is performed by comparing the collected signature samples with input signatures. In this purpose, three feature extraction methods are reviewed and used for the comparison of off-line signatures

    ABSTRACT: Person identification as a security means has a variety of important applications. Many techniques and automated systems have been developed over the past few decades; each has its own advantages and limitations. There are often trade-offs amongst reliability, the ease of use, ethical/human rights issues, and acceptability in a particular application. Multimodal identification and authentication can, to some extent, alleviate the dilemmas and improve the overall performance. This paper proposes a new method of the combined use of signatures and utterances of pronounced names to identify or authenticate persons. Unlike typical signature verification methods, the dynamic features of signatures are captured as sound in this paper. The multimodal approach shows increased reliability, providing a relatively simple and potentially useful method for person identification and authentication.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper we present a new method for off-line Chinese signature verification. The approach is based on feature extraction of every segment segmented from the signature image. A signature image is segmented to some segments. Every segment is represented by a set of seven features, because each type feature has a different impact for the signature verification, each type weighting factor is very import for the Similarity Computation of the off-line Chinese signature verification. Experimental results show a appropriate weight of the features is promising to distinguish skilled forgeries from genuine signatures effectively.
