Privacy Preserving Iris Based Biometric Identity Verification

Przemyslaw Strzelczyk


Iris biometrics is considered one of the most accurate and robust methods of identity verification. Individually unique iris features can be presented in a compact binary form easily compared with reference template to confirm identity. However, when templates or features are disclosed, iris biometrics is no longer suitable for verification. Therefore, there is a need to perform iris feature matching without revealing the features itself and reference template. The paper proposes an extension of the standard iris-based verification protocol that introduces features and a template locking mechanism, which guarantees that no sensitive information is exposed.
