PriCoR: Privacy Protecting Coding for Reliable Biometric Systems


Project Description

A PIN (Personal Identity Number) code can be replaced if necessary. This is not the case for personal biometric information such as fingerprints and iris patterns. Reliable protection of biometric data is therefore crucial. The goal of this project is the design of privacy protecting codes that achieve optimum protection for biometric data and guarantee reliable recognition.
