Summary:
The fuzzy vault scheme introduced by Juels and Sudan [Jue02] was implemented in a fingerprint cryptography system using COTS software. This system proved to be unsuccessful. Failure analysis led to a series of simulations to investigate the parameters and system thresholds necessary for such a system to perform adequately and as guidance for constructing similar systems in the future. First, a discussion of the role of biometrics in data security and cryptography is presented, followed by a review of the key developments leading to the development of the fuzzy vault scheme. The relevant mathematics and algorithms are briefly explained. This is followed by a detailed description of the implementation and simulation of the fuzzy vault scheme. Finally, conclusions drawn from analysis of the results of this research are presented.
