Abstract


To secure biometric data transmission over a network of computers, the cryptography is used as it proves its efficiency and appears to be as an interesting solution. In this paper, we propose a new chaotic encryption system for the fingerprint image. A detailed description of encryption and decryption algorithms is given. Both permutation and diffusion operations employ the new multimodal Piece-Wise Linear Chaotic Map. The chaos-based method is analyzed using several tests on a standard fingerprint database. The obtained results are presented together with a deep analysis, to indicate that the proposed encryption system is extremely secure due to its large key’s value and the good performance of the permutation-diffusion processes. Furthermore, according to the conducted simulation tests, we showed that this algorithm has successfully passed the National Institute of Standards and Technology Special Publication 800-22a tests and security analyses, which confirms that the proposed scheme is a robust cryptographic system when applied to fingerprint images.
