Biometric Fingerprint System Using an Online Based Pattern Recognition for Candidates Authentication in Nigeria Institution Examinations. The Design Perspective
The level of examination malpractices in various Examinations conducted in Nigeria institutions and the rate at which it negatively affects the Nigeria educational system is at the high side. Examination impersonation was the focus in this paper. So many candidates have relent in developing individual skills towards self-confidence in writing an Examination but rely on Examination impersonation to archive what they want at all cost. In other to eliminate any form of impersonation during examination, this paper focus on the development of a secure fingerprint Biometrics system authentication, on this note a study of Joint University Preliminary Examination Board (JUPEB) Biometric Fingerprint System for candidate’s authentication was implemented as a case study. This will go a long way to assist in eliminating examination impersonation in Nigeria Institutions. The paper focused on the design perspective of the system. The implementation was done using Visual Studio 2017 with some optimization at coding level and algorithm level were proposed to improve the performance of the fingerprint recognition system.
