Code Constructions for Physical Unclonable Functions and Biometric Secrecy Systems

Onur Günlü, Onurcan Iscan, Vladimir Sidorenko, and Gerhard Kramer

Abstract

The two-terminal key agreement problem with biometric or physical identifiers is considered. Two linear code constructions based on Wyner-Ziv coding are developed. The first construction uses random linear codes and achieves all points of the key-leakage-storage regions of the generated-secret and chosen-secret models. The second construction uses nested polar codes for vector quantization during enrollment and error correction during reconstruction. Simulations show that the nested polar codes achieve privacy-leakage and storage rates that improve on existing code designs. One proposed code achieves a rate tuple that cannot be achieved by existing methods.

Note: This is the submitted version of the accepted paper with further discussions.
