Abstract: This dissertation describes a signature verification algorithm based on k-nearest neighbours and Levenshtein distance. It is a simple on-line method for classifying handwritten signatures into either genuines or forgeries. Forgery consists on imitating a signature, a document, a banknote or a valued work. It is considered a crime in most countries and it still remains a major problem in nowadays banking. In first place, a brief introduction to the history of biometric systems and handwritten signatures is made. After explaining the state of the art of the field the used well-known methods are explained. Then the used datased is showed and our algorithm presented and implemented.
