Biometrics is an important application of pattern recognition, the cross-domain path between data analysis and artificial intelligence. Technological change and the growing computerization of society have paved the way for biometric systems. They rest on sequence procedures that always follow the same development: biometric data is converted to digital data and stored in memory serve as biometric reference of the individual concerned. A biometric system helps to recognize a person whose identity has been previously stored in a database. In this paper, we present an automatic pointing system which allows identifying personnel from his fingerprint to know the time he/she attaches to the work. It is an authentication work aiming at verifying the identity of personnel during pointing in a company. Fingerprint recognition's algorithm has been suggested by A.K. Jain who is probably the most known.
