Now-a-days bio-metric authentication systems are widely used in order to provide authentication without possessing any physical materials. Bio-metric authentication systems are mainly concentrating on security, revocability, privacy, and accuracy. In this paper, the authors propose a provably two way secured biometric authentication system, which addresses the concerns of user's privacy, template protection, trust issues, network security, and accuracy. The system is highly secure in the sense, biometric details are going to be encrypted twice, the system won't reveal any additional information about the user or biometric, to the authenticating server's database or to the insecure network. In this system two different encryption algorithms have been used both in the client and server side. One is public key cryptography another one is private key cryptography.
