An Efficient Three-Factor Remote User Authentication Scheme Based on Random Projected Biometrics
This paper proposes an efficient three-factor remote user authentication scheme based on random projected biometrics. Similarity-preserving property of random projection overcomes the sensitivity of one-way hash to the intra-class variation of biometric. Furthermore, special random projection is a non-invertible transformation and the seed of random matrix can be easily changed so that privacy protection and biometric changeability are guaranteed. The templates are matched on the client side to resist insider attacks. Besides, both the computational burden of server and the communication load via channel are alleviated. The comprehensive analysis indicates that the proposed scheme is secure.
