Biometric template security using higher order spectra
Chen, Brenden Chong & Chandran, Vinod (2010) Biometric template security using higher order spectra. In Proceedings of International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) 2010, IEEE, Sheraton Dallas Hotel, Dallas, Texas.
A method of improving the security of biometric templates which satisfies desirable properties such as (a) irreversibility of the template, (b) revocability and assignment of a new template to the same biometric input, (c) matching in the secure transformed domain is presented. It makes use of an iterative procedure based on the bispectrum that serves as an irreversible transformation for biometric features because signal phase is discarded each iteration. Unlike the usual hash function, this transformation preserves closeness in the transformed domain for similar biometric inputs. A number of such templates can be generated from the same input. These properties are illustrated using synthetic data and applied to images from the FRGC 3D database with Gabor features. Verification can be successfully performed using these secure templates with an EER of 5.85%
