                         techniques for good-quality images captured by optical sensors, 
                         minutia-based techniques do not often perform so well on 
                         poor-quality images or fingerprint images captured by small 
                         solid-state sensors. Solid-state fingerprint sensors are being 
                         increasingly deployed in a wide range of applications for user 
                         authentication purposes. Therefore, it is necessary to develop new 
                         fingerprint-matching techniques that utilize other features to 
                         deal with fingerprint images captured by solid-state sensors. This 
                         paper presents a new fingerprint matching technique based on 
                         fingerprint ridge features. This technique was assessed on the 
                         MSU-VERIDICOM database, which consists of fingerprint impressions 
                         obtained from 160 users (4 impressions per finger) using a 
                         solid-state sensor. The combination of ridge-based matching scores 
                         computed by the proposed ridge-based technique with minutia-based 
                         matching scores leads to a reduction of the false non-match rate 
                         by approximately 1.7% at a false match rate of 0.1%.",
