Lecture — Hide and Use: Secure Biometric Authentication
Wednesday, February 20, 2019,3:30 pm - 4:30 pm EST
Dr. Koray Karabina of Florida Atlantic University will speak on biometrics-based cybersecurity technologies whick offer significant advantages in authentication, identification, and access control mechanisms. Convenience and fraud prevention requirements in systems create a growing demand for biometric solutions in a wide range of sectors and applications, such as mobile, healthcare, record and personnel management, banking, and border security. The popularity of biometrics technologies and their worldwide deployment makes biometric applications and databases natural targets in cyber attacks on a large scale. Therefore, it is essential to address security and privacy issues in the use and storage of biometric data. In this talk, he will discuss some cryptographic primitives and their implementation towards developing secure and efficient biometric authentication protocols.
The lecture will be followed by a brief presentation of Graduate Programs in the Mathematical Sciences at Florida Atlantic University.
