Abstract: Authentication is the key factor of badging the right person for access which enhances the security system in wireless communication. In this paper, an efficient way of authenticating a person is achieved by selecting a novel biometric feature as ―Lip. Series of image processing procedures are done to enhance the image features and also to fix the boundary values for corresponding pixels. A new filer termed as ―Weighted Triangular Filter (WTF) is formulated to enhance the image features. Finally an 8 bit key is generated in lieu of biometric feature which is then used for encryption in wireless mode.
Keywords: Image concatenation, WTF filer, Key generation, MATLAB Simulation.
