Abstract
Dynamic signature verification (DSV) uses the
behavioral biometrics of a hand-written signature to
confirm the identity of a computer user. This paper
presents a novel stroke-based algorithm for DSV. An
algorithm is developed to convert sample signatures to a
template by considering their spatial and time domain
characteristics, and by extracting features in terms of
individual strokes. Individual strokes are identified by
finding the points where there is a 1) decrease in pen tip
pressure, 2) decrease in pen velocity, and 3) rapid change
in pen angle. A significant stroke is discriminated by the
maximum correlation with respect to the reference
signatures. Between each pair of signatures, the local
