Abstract

The most common secure personal authentication in biometrics is handwritten signature. Signature authentication is the process of verifying an individual’s identity. Signature verification system scan be classified into two methods: online and offline. This paper explains the survey of various approaches related to offline signature verification systems. Further, this paper provides the comparison of those approaches, their results and techniques of feature extraction.
