Abstract Palmprint recognition is a variant of fingerprint matching as both the systems share almost similar matching criteria and the minutiae feature extraction methods. However, there is a performance degradation with palmprint biometrics because of the failure of extracting genuine minutia points from the region of highly distorted ridge information with huge data. In this paper, we propose an efficient palmprint matching algorithm using nearest neighbor minutiae quadruplets. The representation of minutia points in the form of quadruplets ...
