Vulnerabilities and Attack Protection in Security Systems Based on Biometric Recognition (2009)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
Absolute security does not exist: given funding, willpower and the proper technology, every security system can be compromised. However, the objective of the security community should be to develop such applications that the funding, the will, and the resources needed by the attacker to crack the system prevent him from attempting to do so. This Thesis is focused on the vulnerability assessment of biometric systems. Although being relatively young compared to other mature and long-used security technologies, biometrics have emerged in the last decade as a pushing alternative for applications where automatic recognition of people is needed. Certainly, biometrics are very attractive and useful for the final user: forget about PINs and passwords, you are ... toggle 5 keywordsbiometrics – security – vulnerabilities – countermeasures – standards
