Abstract: This paper presents a new technique for off-line signature verification and recognition. The proposed system is based on morphological features (Shape features).Feature extraction stage is the most essential and difficult stage of any off-line signature verification system. The accuracy of the system depends mainly on the effectiveness of the signature features use in the system. The present research work incorporates a novel feature extraction technique for off-line signature verification system. There are nine features extracted from a static image of signatures using this technique. From the experimental results, the new features proved to be more robust than other related features used in the earlier systems. This approach is implemented in MATLAB and it verifies signatures taking into consideration several novel features and success rate achieved is 99.5%.
