Privacy Preserving Key Generation for Iris Biometrics

Abstract : In this work we present a new technique for generating cryptographic keys out of iris textures implementing a key-generation scheme. In contrast to existing approaches to iris-biometric cryptosystems the proposed scheme does not store any biometric data, neither in raw nor in encrypted form, providing high secrecy in terms of template protection. The proposed approach is tested on a widely used database revealing key generation rates above 95%.
