Description

An Introduction to Cancelable Biometrics

Biometric recognition systems using fingerprint, face, etc., offer some obvious advantages over traditional password/token based authentication schemes, and now they are available to users at lower costs. However, the wide use of biometrics raises some concerns. For example, a biometric is permanently associated with a particular individual. Once it is compromised, it will be lost permanently. Moreover, if an individual’s biometric template is compromised in one application, substantially all of the applications, in which the biometric template is used, are compromised. In this presentation, the cancelable biometric technique is introduced to tackle these issues. The advantages and drawbacks of several state-of-the-art methods, to create cancelable biometrics, are discussed and future prospects are given.
