The fuzzy vault scheme has recently become popular approaches to biometric template protection. Since the original scheme has been designed to work with unordered biometric features, such a scheme cannot effectively utilize order information. The authors present in this paper a new fuzzy vault scheme that can effectively utilize the ordered characteristics of biometric features. In this scheme, they develop ordered fuzzy vault encoding and decoding processes in order to utilize the ordered information of the features. This prevents the feature components from cross matching and reduces False Acceptance Ratio (FAR).
