  title={Secret locking: Exploring new approaches to biometric key encapsulation},
  author={Seny Kamara and Breno de Medeiros and Susanne Wetzel},
Biometrics play an increasingly important role in the context of access control techniques as they promise to overcome the problems of forgotten passwords or passwords that can be guessed easily. In this paper we introduce and provide a formal definition of the notion of secret lockingwhich generalizes a previously introduced concept for cryptographic key extraction from biometrics. We give details on an optimized implementation of the scheme which show that its performance allows the system… CONTINUE READING
