Enhancing the Security of Transformation Based Biometric Template Protection Schemes

Abstract

Template protection is a crucial issue in biometrics. Many algorithms have been proposed in the literature among secure computing approaches, crypto-biometric algorithm and feature transformation schemes. The BioHashing algorithm belongs to this last category and has very interesting properties. Among them, we can cite its genericity since it could be applied on any biometric modality, the possible cancelability of the generated BioCode and its efficiency when the secret is not stolen by an impostor. Its main drawback is its weakness face to a combined attack (zero effort with the stolen secret scenario). In this paper, we propose a transformation-based biometric template protection scheme as an improvement of the BioHashing algorithm where the projection matrix is generated by combining the secret and the biometric data. Experimental results on two biometric modalities, namely digital fingerprint and finger knuckle print images, show the benefits of the proposed method face to attacks while keeping a good efficiency.
