Abstract: The human hand has been considered a promising component for biometric-based identification and authentication systems for many decades. In this paper, hand side recognition framework is proposed based on deep learning and biometric authentication using the hashing method. The proposed approach performs in three phases: (a) hand image segmentation and enhancement by morphological filtering, automatic thresholding, and active contour deformation, (b) hand side recognition based on deep Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), and (c) biometric authentication based on the hashing method. The proposed framework is evaluated using a very large hand dataset, which consists of 11076 hand images, including left/ right and dorsal/ palm hand images for 190 persons. Finally, the experimental results show the efficiency of the proposed framework in both dorsal-palm and left-right recognition with an average accuracy of 96.24 and 98.26, respectively, using a completely automated computer program.
