An ECC Based Multibiometric System for Enhancing Security


Authentication schemes employing multibiometric system begin with several identification and verification based security schemes. Current systems implementing multi biometric scheme remain unsatisfactory facing to the growing security needs. The proposed system provides secured authentication to integrate multi biometric system with Elliptic Curve Cryptography that employs two modalities (i) Fusion of fingerprint, face, iris and signature. (ii) Generating elliptic curve and key using Elliptic Curve Cryptography. In the proposed system, selected portion of multi biometric features are fused into a single image and a curve is generated using ECC based technique that employs secured domain parameters generated through Genetic Algorithm. A one time password is also appended to the system to afford high authentication. The proposed algorithm is highly efficient against False Acceptance Rate and False Rejection Rate.
Keywords: Multibiometric, Elliptic Curve Cryptography, One time password, Authentication.
