This paper provides an overview of some current palmprint research. Palmprint recognition has been investigated over the past decade . Palmprint recognition has five stages palmprint acquisition, preprocessing, feature extraction, enro - llment (database) and matching. Due to rich information in palmprint it became a powerful means in person identification. The major approach for palmprint recognition is to extract feature vectors corresponding to individual palm image and to perform matching based on some distance metrics . Palmprint recognition is a challenging problem mainly due to low quality of pattern, large nonlinear distortion between different impression of same palm and large image size, which makes feature extraction and matching computationally demanding.
