Paper Abstract

Biometric EncryptionTM is an algorithm which has been developed to securely link and retrieve a digital key using the interaction of a biometric image, such as a fingerprint, with a secure block of data, known as a BioscryptTM. The key can be used, for example, as an encryption/decryption key. The Bioscrypt comprises a stored filter function, produced by a correlation-based image processing algorithm, as well as other information which is required to first retrieve, and then verify the validity of, the key. The process of securely linking a key with a biometric is known as enrollment, while the process of retrieving this key is known as verification. This paper presents details of the enrollment and verification procedures.
