With the increase in the number of twin births in recent decades, there is a need to develop alternate approaches that can secure the biometric system. In this paper an effective fusion scheme is presented that combines information presented by multiple domain experts based on the rank-level fusion integration method. The developed multimodal biometric system possesses a number of unique qualities, starting from utilizing Fisher’s Linear Discriminant methods for face matching, Principal Component Analysis for fingerprint matching and Local binary pattern features for iris matching and fused the information for effective recognition and authentication The importance of considering these boundary conditions, such as twins, where the possibility of errors is maximum will lead us to design a more reliable and robust security system.The proposed approach is tested on a real database consisting of 50 pair of identical twin images and shows promising results compared to other techniques. The Receiver Operating Characteristics also shows that the proposed method is superior compared to other techniques under study.
