Encryption of Text Using Fingerprints
Abstract: Biometrics is the science and technology of measuring and analyzing biological data of human body, extracting a feature set from the acquired data, and comparing this set against to the template set in the database. Biometric techniques are gaining importance for personal authentication and identification as compared to the traditional authentication methods. User verification systems that use a single biometric indicator often have to contend with noisy sensor data, restricted degrees of freedom, and unacceptable error rates. To represent the large amount of data in the biometric images an efficient feature extraction method is needed. In this paper we have implemented the generation of unique biometric key after Fingerprint processing. Fingerprint processing involves the feature extraction of fingerprint image processing stages such as image Preprocessing, Converting the image in to gray scale, Image Enhancement can be performed with the help of Discrete Fourier transformation, image binarization, image segmentation, image thinning, Minutiae Extraction after Minutiae Extraction again segmentation technique is used. In fingerprints images there are foreground regions and background regions where foreground region show the ridges and valleys while the background regions are to be left out.
