Abstract: Fingerprint segmentation is a crucial step of an automatic fingerprint identification system, since an accurate segmentation promote both the elimination of spurious minutiae close to the foreground boundaries and the reduction of the computation time of the following steps. In this paper, a new, and more robust fingerprint segmentation algorithm is proposed. The main novelty is the introduction of a more robust binarization process in the framework, mainly based on the fuzzy C-means clustering algorithm. Experimental results demonstrate significant benchmark progress on three existing FVC datasets.
