Data protection management process during remote biometric authentication




biometric template, remote authentication, attacks, network steganography


Remote biometric authentication systems have recently become widespread due to the need to use common devices and make payments over the Internet. Because biometric methods are more user-friendly and now quickly replace passwords, the task of transmitting biometric information over an open network without compromising it is becoming urgent. This work aims to upgrade the remote authentication system to increase the secrecy and security of user biometric data. In order to achieve this goal, it is proposed to use the best security methods for forming biometric templates, network steganography to increase secrecy, and the introduction of an intelligent decision-making system. These improvements will increase the security and privacy of data during the remote authentication process.
