Title:Biometrics and Information Security
Biometric authentication technology, which automatically identifies a person based on his/her physical features are widely used for various applications. However, biometric features such as fingerprints can not be revoked like passwords.

To address this issue, an authentication scheme called "template-protected biometric authentication" has been studied for a decade.

However, this task involves difficulty to merge biometric technology, which deals with analogue information, with cryptography, which deals with digital information.

In this talk, I will present an overview and some examples of template-protected biometric authentication, and introduce our recent researches
