520    Fingerprint recognition is one of the first techniques 
       used for automatically identifying people and today it is 
       still one of the most popular and effective biometric 
       techniques. With this increase in fingerprint biometric, 
       issues related to accuracy, security and processing time 
       are major challenges facing the fingerprint recognition 
       systems. To make fingerprint recognition systems secure 
       and accurate, several approaches have been investigated in
       the literature 
520    Previous work has shown that polarization enhancement of 
       fingerprint patterns increase accuracy and security of 
       fingerprint systems. Furthermore it was shown previously 
       that unpolarized fingerprint images require digital 
       enhancements to yield acceptable accuracy levels 
520    This Thesis focused on fusing unpolarized and polarized-
       encoded fingerprint patterns to increase the accuracy and 
       security of fingerprint systems. I proposed a new high 
       boost fusion technique to fuse unpolarized and polarized 
       encoded fingerprint patterns with different proportion. It
       is shown that this approach yields more accurate and 
       secure results compared to polarized and unpolarized 
       fingerprint identification and verification processes
