Secure Fingerprint-Based Remote User Authentication Scheme Using Smartcards
Biometrics and smartcards have the potential to be a very useful combination of technology. Among the various biometrics technological advances in use today, fingerprint recognition seems to be particularly suitable for smartcard systems. In 2002, Lee-Ryu-Yoo proposed a fingerprint-based remote user authentication scheme using smartcards. This scheme, however, was found to be potentially vulnerable to some forgery attacks and is not easily repairable. The current paper presents an improved scheme that is more secure and efficient.
