Biometric technology has received a lot of attention in recent years. One of the most prevalent biometric traits is the finger-knuckle print (FKP). Because the dorsal region of the finger is not exposed to surfaces, FKP would be a dependable and trustworthy biometric. We provide an FKP framework that uses the VGG-19 deep learning model to extract deep features from FKP images in this paper. The deep features are collected from the VGG-19 model's fully connected layer 6 (F6) and fully connected

After applying multiple preprocessing steps, such as combining features from different layers and performing dimensionality reduction using principal component analysis (PCA), the extracted deep features are put to the test. The proposed system's performance is assessed using experiments on the Delhi Finger Knuckle Dataset employing a variety of common classifiers. The best identification result was obtained when the Artificial neural network (ANN) classifier was applied to the principal components of the averaged feature vector of F6 and F7 deep features, with 95% of the data variance preserved. The findings also demonstrate the feasibility of employing these deep features in an FKP recognition system.
