Cracking Biometric Authentication Cryptosystems

Maryam Lafkih

Abstract

Biometric systems are becoming an alternative solution to replace traditional authentication systems. However, security and privacy concerns against these systems arise from the direct storage and the misuse of biometric information. In order to overcome these problems, biometric cryptosystems are proposed as template protection solution improving the confidentiality and the security. Biometric cryptosystems present a secret key mechanism where a secret key is used to overlap biometric data. Several approaches using biometric cryptosystems have been proposed, however a few works have been published giving detailed analysis of these systems and their security. In this paper we give a rigorous discussion on biometric cryptosystems taking into account their security evaluation. Besides, a conception framework of different attacks on biometric cryptosystems is proposed. On the other hand, several measures that can be exploited to decrease the probability of such type of attacks are also presented.
