Miha Jernejčič (2012) Biometric verification in the cloud. EngD thesis.
Biometrics verification refers to recognition of a person based on biometric data. It is based on matching a binary-encoded pattern of a person's characteristic to the reference patterns previously stored in a database. The fingerprint-based verification is one of the oldest and most widely applied approach among all the biometric techniques, mainly due to highly unique fingerprint patterns. The goal of this thesis is implementation of a biometric verification in a cloud platform. The solution consists of an existing system FingerIdent, which implements fingerprint recognition for desktop applications. This system was integrated into a cloud service that uses the latest state-of-the-art security mechanisms. The cloud service was demonstrated on e-learning system Moodle, which was modified to accept the cloud-based biometric fingerprint authentication method. The goal of this thesis was not only to integrate the FingerIdent system into cloud application, but also to find the most appropriate cloud platform for hosting. The final result is a working cloud service with FingerIdent, which uses a fingerprint-based recognition and an adapted e-learning system Moodle that gained fingerprint-based authentication.
