In this paper, fingerprint segmentation for secure Internet verification purposes is investigated. The novel application of computational geometry algorithms in the fingerprint segmentation stage showed that the extracted feature (characteristic polygon) may be used as a secure and accurate method for fingerprint-based verification over the Internet. On the other hand the proposed method promisingly allows very small false acceptance and false rejection rates, as it is based on specific segmentation.
