In this paper, we propose a stable automatic signature verification algorithm applicable to various smart devices. The proposed algorithm uses real and forgery data all together, which can improve the verification rate dramatically. As a tool for signature acquisition in a smart device, two applications, one using touch with a finger and the other using a pressure-sensing-stylus pen, are developed. The verification core is based on SVM and some modifications are made to include the characteristics of signatures. As shown in experimental results, the minimum error rate was 1.84% in the SVM based method, which can easily defeat 4.38% error rate with the previous parametric approach. Even more, 2.43% error rate was achieved with the features excluding pressure-related features, better than the previous approach including pressure-related features and only about 0.6% more error than the best result, which means that the proposed algorithm can be applied to a smart device with or without pressure-sensing-stylus pens and used for security purposes.
