A Voting is common in our daily life, from electing president to electing committee. A complete electronic voting scheme suitable for all kinds of voting with safe guaranty where the voter?s privacy can be protected. Fingerprint system security have been investigated, including the use of fake fingerprints for masquerading identity, the problem of fingerprint alteration or obfuscation has received very little attention. Fingerprint image quality assessment software (e.g., NFIQ) cannot always detect altered fingerprints since the implicit image quality due to alteration may not change significantly. The main contributions of this Research are-1.Compiling case studies of incidents where individuals were found to have altered their fingerprints for circumventing AFIS.2.Identifying the damages of fingerprint alteration on the accuracy of a commercial fingerprint matcher.3.Classifying the alterations into three major categories and suggesting possible countermeasures.4.Developing a technique to automatically detect altered fingerprints based on analyzing orientation field and minutiae distribution.5.Evaluating the proposed technique and the NFIQ algorithm on a big database of altered fingerprints provided by a law enforcement agency. Experimental results show the feasibility of the proposed approach in detecting altered fingerprints and highlight the need to further pursue this problem.
