Bio-Cryptography and Network Security: A Converged
The theoretic framework of network security has been
based on the conventional cryptography. Hence it has inherited the same
fundamental flaw when user authentication is involved: knowledge or taken
based mechanism cannot authenticate the genuine users. While biometrics
such fingerprint, face, iris etc can authenticate genuine users, they
suffer a different built-in weakness: biometric uncertainty. This talk
will discuss challenges and future directions in this converged field.
