Abstract

When biometric authentication is performed on On-Body Wearable Wireless Networks, a cancelable template is useful to protect biometric information. A cancelable template generation method converts the original biometric information into irreversibly transformed information to protect the original biometric information. If a cancelable template is damaged or leaked, it can be replaced with another cancelable template. In 2017, Dwivedi et al. proposed a novel cancelable iris template generation scheme based on the randomized look-up table mapping. So far their scheme is the most accurate scheme with respect to EER compared to the previous cancelable iris template generation schemes. However, their scheme is not alignment-free and so is not efficient enough for wearable sensors. In the paper, we first suggest how to improve the accuracy of the Dwivedi et al.'s scheme using the partial sort technique. Our experiment result shows that our suggested scheme is more accurate than the Dwivedi et al.'s scheme under almost all parameter settings. More concretely, our scheme achieves EER 0.09%, whereas the Dwivedi et al.'s scheme achieves EER 0.43% in the best parameter settings for the CASIA-V3-Interval iris database. We also suggest how to improve the efficiency of the Dwivedi et al.'s scheme. Our second scheme is alignment-free by processing IrisCode column-wise, whereas the Dwivedi et al.'s scheme handles IrisCode row-wise. Our experiment shows that our second scheme is 15 times faster than the Dwivedi et al.'s scheme, so our scheme is efficient enough for wearable sensors. Though our second scheme has very high EER under some parameter settings, our second scheme achieves EER 0.53% in the best parameter settings for the CASIA-V3-Interval iris database.
