    Abstract

    A fixed-length binary representation of a fingerprint has the advantages of a fast operation and a small template storage. For many biometric template protection schemes, a binary string is also required as input. The spectral minutiae representation is a method to represent a minutiae set as a fixed-length real-valued feature vector. In order to be able to apply the spectral minutiae representation with a template protection scheme, we introduce two novel methods to quantize the spectral minutiae features into binary strings: Spectral Bits and Phase Bits. The experiments on the FVC2002 database show that the binary representations can even outperformed the spectral minutiae real-valued features.
