With the development of information communication technology (ICT) in the recent age, authentication has witnessed a drastic change in the way and manners it was done in the recent pass. The rapid growth in electronic examination (e-exams) has posed the need for a safer, faster, a more reliable and efficient method of user's verification than what passwords offered. Fingerprints are used as a form of biometric identification which is unique and does not change in a human's lifetime. The wide use of computer automations in the world has brought about changes in security at global institutions (banking, aviation, government, health) and deploying it in academic institutions would be a success. The most difficult challenges of biometric systems are evident in defining the right and accurate biometric system in solving specified problems. In this paper, we developed a Biometric authentication system for an image enhancement and incorporates SecuGen fingerprint. Minutiae points were extracted by the use of Crossing Number (CN) Concept. The system was developed using Java language for the applets and integrated PHP with a web server (XAMPP), using MySQL database as the backend. The experimental result shows that the developed system has an accuracy level of 97.5% for authentication of user fingerprint which shows that the system is well secured and reliable making it capable of preventing impersonation.
