Sectored Random Projections for Cancelable Iris Biometrics
Privacy and security are essential requirements in practical biometric systems. In order to prevent the theft of biometric patterns, it is desired to modify them through revocable and non invertible transformations called Cancelable Biometrics. In this paper, we propose an efficient algorithm for generating a Cancelable Iris Biometric based on Sectored Random Projections. Our algorithm can generate a new pattern if the existing one is stolen, retain the original recognition performance and prevent extraction of useful information from the transformed patterns. Our method also addresses some of the drawbacks of existing techniques and is robust to degradations due to eyelids and eyelashes.
