In this paper we have proposed an innovative fingerprint recognition system by combining two different fingerprints into a new identity which contains minutiae position and minutiae orientation. In the enrollment phase, two fingerprints are obtained from two different fingers and minutiae positions from one fingerprint, the orientation from the other fingerprint. Based on this extracted information, a combined template is generated and stored in database. In the verification phase, the system requires two query fingerprints from the fingers which are used in the enrollment. The fingerprint matching process is done by minutiae-based fingerprint matching algorithms. By storing the combined template, the complete minutiae feature of a single fingerprint will not be compromised when the database is stolen.
