Fingerprint Identification System Combined With "Cryptography" for Authentication

Biometrics technology, which uses physical or behavioral characteristics to identify users, has come to attract increased attention as a means of reliable personal authentication that helps the identity of an actual user. Among various modalities of Biometrics, Fingerprints are known to have the longest history of actual use in law enforcement applications with proven performance. This paper surveys the state of the art in fingerprint identification technology. In this paper, a design schema of a security authentication system combined with fingerprint identification and public key cryptography is explored, and its specific security mechanism is discussed in detail.
