This paper presents a robust minutiae based method for fingerprint verification. The proposed method uses Delaunay Triangulation to represent minutiae as nodes of a connected graph composed of triangles. The minimum angle over all triangulations is maximized, which gives local stability to the constructed structures against rotation and translation variations. Geometric thresholds and minutiae data were used to characterize the triangulations created from input and template fingerprint images.
