Minutia Cylinder-Code SDK


MCC SDK is a .Net DLL library that enables to develop fingerprint verification applications using the Minutia Cylinder-Code (MCC) algorithms.
Note this is a baseline version without any optimization to be used for research purposes only. An optimized version for CPU (about 7 million comparisons per second using SSE instructions) and for GPU (about 10 million matches per second using CUDA), is available (for information contact Matteo Ferrara).

Version History
  • Version 1.0 - first version released
  • Version 1.1 - some minor bugs have been corrected
  • Version 1.2:
    • Save a CylinderTemplate to a specified file in binary format
    • Load a CylinderTemplate stored in binary format
    • Added MCC Indexing functionalities
    • SDK documentation updated
  • Version 1.3:
    • Added P-MCC functionalities
    • SDK documentation has been updated
    • Some methods have been renamed
  • Version 1.4:
    • Match two MCC/P-MCC Template objects using a local similarity matrix calculated externally
    • Match two MCC/P-MCC Template objects and get detailed results about the matching (e.g., local similarity matrix, selected minutia-index pairs, etc.)
    • Add a minutiae template, stored in ISO format, to the MCC Index
    • Search a minutiae template, stored in ISO format, in the MCC Index
    • Save/Load the MCC Index
    • New parameter configurations have been added
    • SDK documentation has been updated
  • Version 2.0:
    • Added 2P-MCC functionalities
    • Added a simple GUI application to experiment most of the functionalities provided by the SDK
    • Added MATLAB source code to show how to use the SDK from MATLAB
    • Some minor bugs have been corrected
    • SDK documentation has been updated
