BIOMETRIC CRYPTOGRAPHY AND NETWORK AUTHENTICATION

Tonimir Kišasondi, Miroslav Bača, Alen Lovrenčić

Abstract


In this paper we will present some schemes for strengthening network authentification over insecure channels with biometric concepts or how to securely transfer or use biometric characteristics as cryptographic keys. We will show why some current authentification schemes are insufficient and we will present our concepts of biometric hashes and authentification that rely on unimodal and multimodal biometrics. Our concept can be applied on any biometric authentification scheme and is universal for all systems.

Keywords


biometric hash functions; flaws in authentification; identity based encryption
