Abstract

We propose a matching algorithm secure against the wolf attack in one-to-one biometric authentications. Our proposed algorithm embeds a wolf-judgement function in a traditional matching algorithm. We show that our proposed algorithm is accurate and secure. Moreover we remark that our proposed algorithm is efficient in a framework proposed by Inuma, Otsuka, and Imai [1].
