Application of Biometric Fusion Strategies in Cybersecurity Applications

Sani Suleiman Isah


Previous studies that used a biometric fusion technique in the creation of cybersecurity applications are presented in this paper. Because it remains unchanging throughout a human’s life and the vein pattern is unique to each human, biometric verification utilizing finger vein has been evaluated as very secure and accurate. Finger vein data cannot be intentionally copied or stolen. Furthermore, finger-vein authentication provides secure and dependable capabilities for an authentication system. Individual finger-knuckle prints have strong discriminative power and can tolerate wear. Researchers have employed it in biometric authentication systems to circumvent security issues. It is a new biometric modality at the user’s outer finger surface, which surrounds the phalangeal joint. It also demonstrates how a security system based on finger knuckle prints could be successful. This review covers related works on information granulation techniques (a driving factor of granular computing) and datasets utilized in biometric fusion development research.
