Biometric Parameter Based Cryptographic Key Generation

A method is proposed for generation of unique cryptographic key which is generated using biometrics of the user, which are stable throughout person's lifetime. The proposed approach reduces the cost associated with lost keys, addresses non-repudiation issues and provides increased security of digital content. This approach has reduced the complicated sequence of the operation to generate crypto keys as in the traditional cryptography system. The key is derived directly from the biometric data and is not stored in the database, since it creates more complexity to crack or guess the cryptographic keys.
