Public Key Infrastructure of Using the Fingerprint Information in Electronic Bidding System
In the electronic bidding system, the user authentication uses the PKI technology of the password-based. In the case of the password-based PKI technology, because it protects by using the password which is easy that user memorizes the private key, he has the problem about the password exposure. If the user fingerprint information is used, the user authentication in which the security is strengthened than the existing authentication technology can be done. Therefore, in this paper, we had designed and developed the electronic bidding system which it uses the fingerprint information, it stores the user fingerprint information and certificate in the fingerprint security token and can authenticate the user.
