Securing biometric data using data hiding techniques


Biometrics based authentication systems have been gaining widespread acceptance in the information security domain. However there are several loopholes in biometric systems.

Description

Biometrics based authentication systems have been gaining widespread acceptance in the information security domain. However there are several loopholes in biometric systems. This project aims at improving the security and authentication mechanisms of biometric systems by using complementary data hiding techniques. Fragile watermarking will be used to check the integrity and authenticity of biometric templates before identification. This will improve the overall security. 

This project is funded by Board of Research in Nuclear Science.
