During the semester I created a classification algorithm that uses multivariate normal distributions to create models that approximate data extracted from signatures. Data are grouped based on which feature they belong to within a signature, because I made the assumption that there is a strong correlation between these values, so it is worthwhile to investigate them together. After building a model, I check whether the investigated signatures fit the model, and make a decision based on that whether they are to be considered original or forged. I then integrated the created algorithm into an existing system by implementing the necessary interfaces. I also added new controls to the existing user interface so it would be possible to control parameters of the multivariate normal distributions. I also tested the created algorithm on a given set of signatures and investigated its efficiency and usability. After evaluation, I investigated where the algorithm could be used and in what direction it should be developed further. To ease the processing of data I created filters that can be configured with each input set and afterward be reused in both the training and testing phases.
