BioLocker: A Practical Biometric Authentication Mechanism based on 3D Fingervein

F. Betül Durak and Loďs Huguenin-Dumittan and Serge Vaudenay

Abstract: We design a consecution of protocols which allows organizations to have secure strong access control of their users to their desktop machines based on biometry. It provides both strong secure authentication and privacy. Moreover, our mechanism allows the system admins to grant a various level of access to their end-users by fine tuning access control policy. Our system implements privacy-by-design. It separates biometric data from identity information. It is practical: we fully implemented our protocols as a proof of concept for a hospital. We use a 3D fingervein scanner to capture the biometric data of the user on a Raspberry Pi. For the biometry part, we developed an optimal way to aggregate scores using sequential distinguishers. It trades desired FAR and FRR against an average number of biometric captures.
