Automatic identity verification systems play an important role in many applications where the access to critical resources must be controlled (e.g. internet transactions, airport access and so on). Fingerprints have been used as biometrics to identity verification, and many techniques have been recently proposed for fingerprint identification. In this work, we propose a methodology to fuse the decisions of multiple verification algorithms in order to increase the robustness and the performance of a fingerprint verification system. Experimental results showing the effectiveness of our approach are reported.
