Abstract This paper presents a new biometric encryption protocol in which encryption key is incorporated with fingerprint indexing. Based on the extended chaotic Baker map, the pixel permutation and gray level value substitution are performed to shuffle pixel positions in the original fingerprint images. The encryption key of the pixel permutation is generated by the combination of the random pixel distribution of a fingerprint imprint as well as features used for the fingerprint indexing. In addition to the advantage enjoyed by biometric keys over traditional password/PINs, the proposed biometric encryption approach is very efficient in identity identification within a large database due to the pre-filtering feature of the fingerprint indexing incorporated in the keys. This approach is applicable to the centralized matching scenario where fingerprints need to be encrypted before transmitted. Simulation results have validated the proposed schemes.
