"Reliable information security mechanisms are required in the today's era of cyber theft. Traditional Cryptography is a powerful mechanism to achieve information security. Current cryptographic algorithms (e.g., Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Data Encryption Standard (DES) and RSA) have a very high proven security but they suffer from the key management problem. Human identification is also a challenging field. That is why if, the authors can make a blend of cryptography and biometric then it becomes a upcoming security tool. Using unique biometric identity of a person the keys for cryptosystem can be made secure."
