Bio-Cryptography and Network Security: A Converged View

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.
