A Novel Fingerprint Re-Alignment Solution That Uses the TFCP as a Reference

Fingerprint re-alignment is an important aspect in the subject of fingerprint biometrics because a fingerprint recognition system that does not attempt to re-align an involuntarily rotated fingerprint can create opportunities for falsely rejecting a legitimate subject. It can also create opportunities for security attacks where an illegitimate subject voluntarily rotates their fingerprint, as a way of tempering with the functionality of the recognition system. This paper presents a new fingerprint re-alignment solution that uses the True Fingerprint Center Point (TFCP) as a reference, where the TFCP is introduced as the actual center of the fingerprint image foreground.
