This paper highlight needs to solve security problem in the authors' network society. This paper introduces a novel watermarking based approach to protect the palmprint data by hiding it into host image for personal identification purpose. Proposed the authentication scheme to protect the biometric templates and to improve the security and privacy level of biometric authentication system. To achieve this, principle lines of palmprint image is embedded in to host image. The origin of the palmprint images is proven by checking matching percentages of encoded and decoded image.
