Biometrics-Based Authentication: A New Approach
Authentication is a fundamental issue to any trust oriented computing system and also a critical part in many security protocols. Performing authentication is notoriously difficult. Biometrics has been widely used and adopted as a promising authentication method due to its advantages over some existing methods, particularly, its resistance to losses incurred by theft of passwords and smart cards. However, biometrics introduces its own challenges, such as being irreplaceable once compromised. Moreover, the use of biometrics introduces privacy concern.
