On-line Signature Verification Based on GA-SVM
Keywords:Online Signature Verification, SVM, Data Description, Genetic Algorithm, Feature Selection
With the development of pen-based mobile device, on-line signature verification is gradually becoming a kind of important biometrics verification. This thesis proposes a method of verification of on-line handwritten signatures using both Support Vector Data Description (SVM) and Genetic Algorithm (GA). A 27-parameter feature set including shape and dynamic features is extracted from the on-line signatures data. The genuine signatures of each subject are treated as target data to train the SVM classifier. As a kernel based one-class classifier, SVM can accurately describe the feature distribution of the genuine signatures and detect the forgeries. To improving the performance of the authentication method, genetic algorithm (GA) is used to optimise classifier parameters and feature subset selection. Signature data form the SVC2013 database is used to carry out verification experiments. The proposed method can achieve an average Equal Error Rate (EER) of 4.93% of the skill forgery database.
