Abstract: Biometrics authentication provides highest level of security. It allows the user to get authenticated using his or her own physical or behavioral characteristics. Unimodal biometrics have several problems such as noisy data, spoof attacks etc. which cause data insecure. To overcome these problems multimodal biometrics is used. Multimodal biometrics allows fusing two or more characteristics into single identification. It leads to more secure and accurate data. In this paper, we have combined two characteristics –one physical and one behavioral and further a key is added to the template to make it more secure. The template is finally stored in database.
Keywords: Biometric template protection, multimodal biometrics, biometric cryptosystem, hybrid approach for biometric template protection.
