As a new manner of biometrics measurement, human finger vein pattern has been developed. Many researchers have paid close attention to this topic. In this paper, three methodologies of features extraction are used for finger vein verification system. These methods are; Grey Level Co-occurrence Matrix (GLCM), Tamura, and Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT). Empirically, the results of the proposed algorithm was acceptable and better.
