Fingerprints in forensic applications

Date: 2021-02-09 (12:30-13:30) Location: EAB Virtual Lunch Talk

Organizer: European Association for Biometrics (EAB)
Attendance is free of charge but registration is required. Registered participants will receive dial-in credentials in the morning of the event.
Speakers: Martin Drahansky

The presentation will deal with the methods of fingerprinting, digitization and processing for the creation of fake fingerprints (PAD), the extraction of features (minutiae) and their use for generating synthetic fingerprints, including damage simulation. Last but not least, the fingerprint damage detection and its origin and overall quality estimation of the fingerprint will be mentioned.

Curriculum vitæ

Prof. Martin Drahansky graduated in 2001 from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science BUT and simultaneously from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering FernUniversität in Hagen, Germany. His Ph.D. thesis was focused on generating cryptographic keys from fingerprints, which he defended in 2005 at the Faculty of Information Technology BUT. In 2017 he was promoted to full professor. He worked from 2002 to 2005 at the University of Siegen, Institute of Measurement Technology (Germany) and also collaborated with the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD in Darmstadt (Germany). In 2014, he went on sabbatical to the Tokyo Institute of Technology (Japan) for half a year. In recent years, he has focused on areas related to biometric systems – processing of images and videos, sensoric systems (including embedded systems and robotics) and IT security. During his leisure activities he practices judo, mountain bike, via ferratas, fitness and mineralogy plus entomology.

The programme will be published shortly.
