Robustness of Multimodal Biometric Fusion Methods Against Spoof Attacks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper addresses the security of multimodal biometric systems when one of the modes is successfully spooled. It proposes two novel fusion schemes that can increase the security of multimodal biometric systems. The first is an extension of the likelihood ratio based fusion scheme and the other uses fuzzy logic Besides the matching score and sample quality score proposed fusion schemes also take into account the intrinsic security of each biometric system being fused. Experimental results have shown that the proposed methods are more robust against spoof attacks when compared with traditional fusion methods.
