LivDet 2013 Fingerprint database access

Project Description

The Livdet 2013 Fingerprint Liveness Database [Ghiani2013] is a fingerprint liveness database which consists of four sub-sets, which contain live and fake fingerprint images from four capture devices. Images have been collected by a consensual approach and using different materials for the artificial reproduction of the fingerprint (gelatine, silicone, play-doh, ecoflex, body double, wood glue).
