In this work the application of adaptive Bloom filters to binary iris biometric feature vectors, i.e. iris-codes, is proposed. Bloom filters, which have been established as a powerful tool in various fields of computer science, are applied in order to transform iris-codes to a rotation-invariant feature representation. Properties of the proposed Bloom filter-based transform concurrently enable (1) biometric template protection, (2) compression of biometric data, and (3) acceleration of… CONTINUE READING
