    Among different nanotechnological developments, quantum dot cellular automaton is an up-and-coming realm. A nanoscale logical circuit can be obtained easily through QCA device. Fingerprint can be categorized as a unique feature to identify a person. Fingerprint recognition can be done by biometrics, thus biometric can be said as an integral part of user authentication. Irreversible technology experiences some difficulties like higher dissipated heat. Thus reversible logic is essential where dissipation of heat will be almost negligible. A reversible circuit for fingerprint authenticator using Feynman gate has been proposed in this paper and implemented with QCA. Both the theoretical values and the simulation results are matched which justifies the authenticity of the proposed circuits design.
