20-00-1118-iv Biometric recognition and security

After successfully attending the course, students are familiar with the biometric solutions. They understand fundamental techniques for the automatic recognition of individuals, the vulnerabilities of biometrics, and the protection measures against these vulnerabilities. They are able to implement these techniques in order to solve basic biometric tasks on realistic problems.

The course includes:

Biometrics systems and their structure; Biometric performance evaluation and metrics; Face Recognition; Fingerprint and Ocular biometrics; Multi-biometric fusion; Efficient machine learning and biometrics; Vulnerabilities of Biometric systems; Presentation attack detection; Biometric Template protection; Biometric Privacy; Fairness in biometric systems.
