Abstract / truncated to 115 words (read the full abstract)

Cryptography and biometrics have been identified as two of the most important aspects of digital security environment. For various types of security problems the merging between cryptography and biometrics has led to the development of Bio crypt technology. The new technology suffers from several limitations and this thesis, addresses the biometric information quality and the security weakness of cryptography. In many applications fingerprint has been chosen as a core of bio crypt combined technology due to it’s maturity in terms of availability, uniqueness, permanence, feasibility, ease of use and acceptance. Fingerprint has been studied from the point of view of information strength to suitability to the cryptographic requirement. The factors relating to generating and constructing ... toggle 6 keywords
