In traditional cryptosystems, user authentication is based on possession of secret keys/tokens. Such keys can be forgotten, lost, stolen, or may be illegally shared, but an ability to relate a cryptographic key to biometric data can enhance the trustworthiness of a system. This paper presents a new approach to generating encryption keys directly from biometrics.
