In this paper we analyze the vulnerability to hill-climbing attacks of a biometric recognition system based on electroencephalography (EEG). It is assumed that an attacker can access the scores produced by the employed matcher, and use them to control the generation of synthetic EEG templates until achieving a successful authentication. To this aim,(More)
Although it has been a part of the dark underbelly of the Internet since its inception, recent events have brought the discussion board site 4chan to the forefront of the world's collective mind. In particular , /pol/, 4chan's " Politically Incorrect " board has become a central figure in the outlandish 2016 Presidential election. Even though 4chan has long(More)
Biometric recognition systems, despite the advantages provided with respect to traditional authentication methods, have some peculiar weaknesses which may allow an attacker being falsely recognized or accessing users' personal data. Among such vulnerabilities, in this paper, we speculate on the hill-climbing attack, i.e., the possibility for an attacker to(More)
In this paper, we present a novel biometric cryptosystem obtaining perfect security, that is not leaking any information about the employed secret key from the knowledge of the stored helper data. While similar purposes have already been sought in the literature, the approaches proposed so far have been evaluated in terms of recognition performance under(More)
