A Secured Public Key Cryptosystem for Biometric Encryption


M.Gobi, D.Kannan


Vol. 15  No. 1  pp. 49-57


In the modern era security plays an important role in each and every field. The needs for stringent security measures in biometric systems have greater importance for information security systems. The biometric systems to offer reliable and high security to ensure invulnerability. This paper proposes two different approaches based on Elliptic curve cryptography and Hyper Elliptic curve cryptography for protection of biometric authentication systems. The implementation of public key algorithms has been realized for experimental purposes and the results thus obtained have been critically verified in this paper.
