A Brief Overview of Hybrid Schemes for Biometric Fingerprint Template Security

Edwin T. L. Rampine, Cynthia H. Ngejane

Abstract

Biometric systems are vastly adopted and consolidated into various information and security systems. Hence, it is vital that these biometrics-based systems be immune to attacks. Fingerprint template protection is a critical part of fingerprint based biometric systems. A significant number of fingerprint template protection schemes have been published. However, none of the existing protection schemes can satisfy all security requirements for template protection. Hence more researchers are combining these single schemes to create more robust hybrid schemes. In this paper we present an overview of some of the various proposed hybrid schemes for fingerprint template security. We also present their general performance results. Our goal is to briefly report on this growing interest in creating a fully secure biometric hybrid scheme, and show some of the proposed solutions in the literature so far.
