With the evolution of consumer electronics technologies, personal information in consumer devices is becoming increasingly valuable. To protect private information from misuses due to loss or theft, secure user identification mechanisms should be equipped into the consumer devices. This paper develops a secure user identification system for consumer electronics devices based on fingerprint identification. The fingerprint identification system is one of the biometric sensor technologies, which provides high accuracy and convenience than other identification techniques. Specifically, the proposed system uses the orientation map and the edit-distance for immediate and accurate identification of users. Experimental results show that the proposed system achieves good performance in terms of the false rejection rate and the false acceptance rate.
