The current project presents a combined fingerprint generation method that is used to protect the privacy of an individual by creating a new identity. There are two parts of this process: the enrollment process and the verification process. In the enrollment process, two fingerprints are acquired from different fingers from an individual, and with the help of an algorithm presented here, a new combined fingerprint is generated. The newly generated fingerprint is saved in a database. In the verification process, the same two fingerprints are acquired as an input and they are combined together. This newly generated combined fingerprint is compared with the fingerprint stored in the database to verify the identity of that individual. The simulation results show that this system is highly accurate and provides superior protection of both the individual’s original identity as well as the employer’s system.
