The fuzzy commitment scheme is one of most popular biometric cryptosystems that aim at securing cryptographic keys using biometrics. Because of the high recognition accuracy exhibited by the iris, iris-based fuzzy commitment schemes, among other modalities, provide the most practical performance rates. Unfortunately, existing iris-based fuzzy commitment schemes do not incorporate noise masks, generated along with iris-codes to highlight unwanted regions of the iris, because there is no way to know the mask of the decoding iris sample in advance. Therefore, the decoding accuracy of iris-based fuzzy commitment schemes is much less than the recognition accuracy of the underlying iris recognition system.
