An Efficient Offline Signature Verification System

M. Arathi and A. Govardhan

Abstract—Offline signature verification is one of most challenging area of pattern recognition. Many methods have been introduced in literature to find whether a given signature is genuine or forgery. In the proposed work, the signature image is converted into time series data using linear scanning method and then time series shapelets are identified to distinguish genuine signatures from forged ones. The shapelets are time series subsequences which are maximally representative of a class. To compare the time series data, the proposed method uses Mahalanobis distance measure. The experimental results show that the method has great reduction in equal error rate.

Index Terms—Mahalanobis distance measure, time series data, time series shapelets, signatures.
