Welcome to my home page. I am glad you have found your way to this site and appreciate your taking the time to visit. Currently, I am working as a Associate Professor in the Discipline of Computer Science and Engineering at Indian Institute of Technology Indore.
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.
