Fingerprint liveness detection consists in extracting measurements, from a fingerprint image, allowing to distinguish between an “alive” fingerprint image, that is, an image coming from the fingertip of the claimed identity, and an artificial replica. Several algorithms have been proposed so far, but the robustness of their performance has not yet been compared when varying several environmental conditions. In this paper, we present a set of experiments investigating the performance of several feature sets designed for fingerprint liveness detection. In particular we assessed the decrease of performance when varying the pressure and the environmental illumination as well as the size of the region of interest (ROI) used for extracting such features. Experimental results on a large data set show the different dependence of some features sets on the investigated conditions.
