Multi-Modal Biometric Template Security: Fingerprint and Palmprint Based Fuzzy Vault


V Evelyn Brindha and AM Natarajan

Multi-biometric system stores multiple templates for the same user corresponding to the different biometric sources. Infallible security should be provided to the stored biometric templates as biometric is not revocable. In this work, multi-modal biometric template security for palmprint and fingerprint is proposed which is based on the fuzzy vault generation. At first, the preprocessing steps are applied and subsequently, the features are extracted and combined. For recognition, we match the feature vectors of images. The multi-modal biometric template along with the input key are used to generate the fuzzy vault. In the decoding process, the template is given as input and is combined with the stored fuzzy vault to generate the corresponding final key. The experimentation is carried out using CASIA database for palmprint and FVC 2004 database for fingerprint. The evaluation metrics have FMR and FNMR value parameters.
