Abstract

With the widespread development of biometrics, concerns about security and privacy are increasing. In biometrics, template protection technology aims to protect the confidentiality of biometric templates (i.e., enrolled biometric data) by certain conversion. The fuzzy commitment scheme gives a practical way to protect biometric templates using a conventional error-correcting code. The scheme has both concealing and binding of templates, but it has some privacy problems. Specifically, in case of successful matching, stored biometric templates can be revealed. To address such problems, we improve the scheme. Our improvement is to coat with two error-correcting codes. In particular, our scheme can conceal stored biometric templates even in successful matching. Our improved scheme requires just conventional error-correcting codes as in the original scheme, and hence it gives a practical solution for both template security and privacy of biometric templates.
