Biometric recognition system refers to automatic recognition of individuals based on their unique physical or behavioural traits. The recent advancement in technologies has made biometric systems more affordable and as a result they are deployed in a variety of smart consumer devices such as mobile phones and tablets. However, it suffers from security and privacy invasion challenges. The compromise of a biometric data may cause permanent loss of identity of a user since biometric data is irreplaceable and irrevocable. My research group is working to address these issues. They are looking for a sufficiently robust cancelable biometric system with provision of substantial template protection mechanism needs to be designed which must meet four design criteria (irreversibility, revocability, diversity and accuracy) for a practical biometric system.
