Keywords — Fingerprint Presentation Attack Detection, Biometric Information Protection


Biometric recognition systems are part of our daily life. They enable a user-convenient authentication alternative to passwords or tokens as well as high security identity assessment for law enforcement and border control. However, with a rising usage in general, fraudulent use increases as well. During his Ph.D., Jascha Kolberg worked on the topics of security enhancement and privacy protection for biometric systems. On the one hand, this talk reviews methods for fingerprint presentation attack detection, and on the other hand, long-term privacy protection is achieved by using post-quantum secure cryptography, which allows a comparison of biometric data in the encrypted domain.
