A Blind Signature Scheme using Biometric Feature Value

Muduli, J P and Parida, S K (2010) A Blind Signature Scheme using Biometric Feature Value. BTech thesis.



Blind signature has been one of the most charming research fields of public key cryptography through which authenticity, data integrity and non-repudiation can be verified. Our research is based on the blind signature schemes which are based on two hard problems – Integer factorization and discrete logarithm problems. Here biological information like finger prints, iris, retina DNA, tissue and other features whatever its kind which are unique to an individual are embedded into private key and generate cryptographic key which consists of private and public key in the public key cryptosystem. Since biological information is personal identification data, it should be positioned as a personal secret key for a system. In this schemes an attacker intends to reveal the private key knowing the public key, has to solve both the hard problems i.e. for the private key which is a part of the cryptographic key and the biological information incorporated in it. We have to generate a cryptographic key using biometric data which is called biometric cryptographic key and also using that key to put signature on a document. Then using the signature we have to verify the authenticity and integrity of the original message. The verification of the message ensures the security involved in the scheme due to use of complex mathematical equations like modular arithmetic and quadratic residue as well.
