Abstract: The signature verification is the oldest security technique to verify the identification of person. Recently, signature recognition schemes are growing in the world of security technology. It offers two different types of schemes those are offline and online method. The offline technique means to verify a signature written on paper which is scanned to convert it into a digital image, where as the online system required an online device such as Tablet PC, touch screen monitor by a pressure sensitive pen to verify the signature. Offline signature verification scheme is considered as a highly secured technique to recognize the genuine personís identity. Project will implement offline signature verification technique using Artificial Neural Network (ANN) approach.
