In this paper, the authors propose a unique security architecture where face features and subsequently the generated templates are used as the key for document security. A framework needs users to register with the system along with their face instances. The instances are used for training samples. Once a user selects a folder for encryption, all the files of the folders are encrypted with the templates generated from users face data. A decryption request needs to be authenticated through the face data and the template generated at the time of decryption is used for decrypting the encrypted files. Rinjdal method is used for the cryptographic framework. Frames are acquired in real time from camera and face part is segmented based on skin segmentation.
