Lately, Biometrics has employed the use of fingerprints to identify individuals. Out of the commonly used techniques, fingerprint authentication till date, remains the most reliable. The bulk of research that has focused on fingerprint authentication, has however, neglected the issues that arise with fingerprints resulting to incorrect orientation identification. This is because it is assumed and often times wrongly, that the direction of the fingerprint will align with the stored fingerprint image. This singular issue poses tension in fingerprint matching, which only a negligible number of techniques have considered. As computers and mobile devices adopt fingerprint recognition as a way to authenticate user, this apparent tension gains more popularity, becoming an integral research area which must be addressed.
