Biometric ID technologies are advantageous because they rely on unique characteristics that are invariant over a lifetime. However, the biometric template is irrevocable, which can cause great security risks if a user’s biometric template is leaked. Research and development of biometric key generation technologies and shared learning at encrypted space can help to improve biometric recognition capabilities while providing a means for one-way transformation and revocability of biometric templates. Such a research effort has great value, as it is essential to protect user privacy and secure the circulation of user data.
