CryptoBiometrics for Enhanced Trusted Identity Management:
Dreams & Reality
Brussels, 17-18 January 2011

The TURBINE project is developing a technology that aims to transform a description of fingerprints through crypto-biometrics techniques. The transformation result can only be re-generated by the person with the fingerprints and the result does not reveal any information about the original sample. Applying such outcomes on Identity Management schemes, TURBINE paves the way to mechanisms which combine the legitimate anonymity required by citizen and the trusted authentication expected by service providers.

Dreams & Reality is the meaning of this two-day-workshop which will be held on 17 and 18 January 2011 at the International Auditorium, in Brussels, Belgium. Both days will compare expectations with the current state-of-the-art.

  • The first session of the workshop targets a scientific audience which is looking for a worldwide vision of on-going research on biometrics transformation for cryptographic, secure protocols dedicated to privacy enhancing, security assessment and accuracy evaluation. The dialogue with experts coming around the world will give a clear vision on current capacities and limits of crypto-biometrics.
  • The second session of the workshop targets the biometrics stakeholders´ community. Identity Management for this 21st century must satisfied citizen´s requirements: the legitimate privacy protection and their smart identity recognition. Crypto-biometrics seems to offer a tool within the future Identity Management architecture. The session will aim to bring a clear vision of what the current techniques may bring in terms of security, accuracy and trust to citizen.

Dreams & Reality of crypto-biometrics for trusted Identity Management will definitively be clarified during these two days thanks to the contributions of world class specialists and the outcomes of the European project TURBINE.

Please, go through the different sections of the workshop for more detailed information on this two-day-event and for registering on-line.
