Paper Abstract

In this paper, a novel authentications system combining biometric cryptosystems with digital watermarking is presented. One of the main vulnerabilities of the existing data hiding systems is the public knowledge of the embedding domain. We propose the use of biometric data, minutiae fingerprint set, for generating the encryption key needed to decompose an image in the Tree structured Haar transform. The uniqueness of the biometrics key together with other, embedded, biometric information guarantee the authentication of the user. Experimental tests show the effectiveness of the proposed system.
