User authentication, which refers to the process of verifying
the identity of a user, is becoming an important security re-
quirement in various embedded systems. While conventional
solutions for user authentication have relied on password-based
mechanisms, they are increasingly being replaced by biomet-
ric technologies such as fingerprint, face, and voice recogni-
tion, which are known to provide higher levels of security
for user authentication. This paper investigates the prob-
lem of supporting efficient fingerprint-based user authentica-
