In this paper, a hybrid iris biometric protection scheme using 4D hyperchaotic system by means of coherent superposition and modified equal modulus decomposition in hybrid multi-resolution wavelet domain is proposed. The 4D hyperchaotic framework is employed for producing the permutation keystream for pixel swap-over mechanism. The hybrid multi-resolution is produced by means of Kronecker product of Walsh transform and fractional Fourier transform of different orders. Fractional orders of the hybrid multiresolution wavelet along with the parameters and initial conditions of the 4D hyperchaotic framework, later fill in as additional keys, thus enhancing the key space of the proposed mechanism. The proposed scheme has nonlinear characteristics and has high robustness against brute-force attack attributable to its enormous key-space. Numerical simulations have been carried out on grayscale images to prove the authenticity and efficacy of the proposed cryptosystem. The functioning of the proposed cryptosystem is investigated against various attacks including special attack. Outcomes display that the proposed iris template protection scheme not only has higher robustness against noise attack but is also unassailable to the iterative transform-based attacks.
