Abstract

A critical step in automatic fingerprint identification system(AFIS) is the accurate segmentation of fingerprint images. The objective of fingerprint segmentation is to extract the region of interest(ROI).We present a method for fingerprint segmentation based on boundary area gray-level values. We also present a modified traditional gradient based segmentation technique. The enhanced segmentation technique is tested on FVC2004 database and results show that our modified method gives better results in all cases.
