This research review paper discusses about Offline and Online Signature Verification and Forgery Detection.In this paper we discuss various methods used in offline signature verification like DTW,HMM,GMM and Fuzzy Modellig. We propose to use SVC2004 Database of online signatures, making use of various measurements a digital signature tablet provides for the modelling of verification and forgery detection system.
