The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the University of Cagliari, in cooperation with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Clarkson University, announced the first edition of the Fingerprint Liveness Detection Competition 2009, which was held in the context of 15th International Conference on Image Analysis and Processing (ICIAP 2009).
The goal of the competition was to compare different methodologies for software-based fingerprint liveness detection with a common experimental protocol and data set. The ambition of the competition was to become the reference event for academic and industrial research. The competition was not defined as an official system for quality certification of the proposed solutions, but may impact the state of the art in this crucial field, with reference to the general problem of security in biometric systems.
The data set for the final evaluation of LivDet 2009 was constituted of three sub-sets, which contain live and fake fingerprint images from three different optical sensors:
|DATASET||Scanners||Model No.||Resolution (dpi)||Image size|
|Dataset #1||Crossmatch||Verifier 300LC||500||480x640|
Images have been collected by a consensual approach and using different materials for the artificial reproduction of the fingerprint (gelatine, silicone, play-doh).
|DATASET||Live Samples||Fake Samples|
