Vorlesung und Seminar im Sommersemester 2015 (Hochschule Darmstadt - LV 41.4820):
Biometrische Systeme


Biometric recognition of individuals based on the observation of behavioural and biological characteristics, such as face, iris or fingers. Such methods can be used for verification or identification applications and constitute a comfortable alternative to knowledge based or token based methods.


The lecture begins with an overview of biometric applications and then covers selected biometric concepts, particularly fingerprint recognition, vein recognition, face recognition and iris recognition. To this end, the relevant physiological characteristics, their variability, and potential problems are discussed before analyzing different approaches for each of the attributes to be investigated. In each case, not only benign applications are covered but also potential bottlenecks such as insufficient sample quality along the entire processing chain. The use of multi-biometrics including data fusion is discussed both in the context of robustness against attacks and improving the overall accuracy of the recognition process. The course continues with a discussion of the ethical and privacy-related issues in biometrics, along with possible limitations and technical mitigation mechanisms. Special attention is given to privacy enhancing technologies that provides protection of sensitive biometric data. In this line the course concludes with comparison-on-card approaches and template protection concepts that allow revocation of biometric references.
