Abstract

Security is very important in present day life. In this computer-networked world, most of the activities are computer based, and the data transactions arc protected by passwords. These passwords identify various entities such as bank accounts, mobile phones, etc. People might reuse the same password, or passwords might be related to an individual that can lead to dictionary attacks. Indeed, remembering several passwords become a tedious task. Biometrics is a science that measures individual physical characteristics in a unique way. Thus, biometrics serves as a method to replace the cumbersome use of complex passwords. Our research uses the features of biometrics to efficiently implement a biometric encryption system with high level of security.
