AbstractNowadays, biometric-based authentication systems are widely used. This fact has led to increased attacks on biometric data of users. Therefore, biometric template protection is sure to keep the attention of researchers for the security of the authentication systems. Many previous works proposed the biometric template protection schemes by transforming the original biometric data into a secure domain, or establishing a cryptographic key with the use of biometric data. The main purpose was that fulfill the all three requirements: cancelability, security, and performance as many as possible. In this paper, using random projection merged with fuzzy commitment, we will introduce a hybrid scheme of biometric template protection. We try to limit their own drawbacks and take full advantages of these techniques at the same time. In addition, an analysis of non-invertibility property will be exercised with regards to the use of random projection aiming at enhancing the security of the system while preserving the discriminability of the original biometric template.
