Program | Registration

The Norwegian Biometric Forum (NBF) is an open platform dedicated to regular exchange of information and experience related to the field of Biometrics. The target of the group is the interdisciplinary discussion between research, technology developers, data privacy experts, governmental agencies and operators of Biometric Systems. In the regular meetings new applications, latest research results and products are presented.

Hybrid Biometric Template Protection: Resolving the Agony of Choice between Bloom Filters and Homomorphic Encryption

Date: 2022-11-01 (12:30-13:30 CET) Location: Big Blue Button

Attendance is free of charge but registration is required.
Registered participants will receive dial-in credentials the morning of the event.


Speakers: Amina Bassit
Program | Registration

Bloom filters (BFs) and homomorphic encryption (HE) are prominent techniques used to design biometric template protection (BTP) schemes that aim to protect sensitive biometric information during storage and comparison. In this talk, Amina will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of these two approaches. Her key insight is to extend this theoretical investigation to iris recognition, which 1) benefits from the alignment-free property of BFs and 2) induces huge computational burdens in the HE-encrypted domain. BF-based BTPs can be fast with high recognition accuracy but lack unlinkability, or fast with unlinkability but lack high accuracy. HE-based BTPs are secure, accurate, and unlinkable, but slower than BF-based approaches. In light of a joint work recently published in the IET Biometrics journal in 2022, Amina will present her hybrid BTP scheme that combines BFs and HE as a solution that ensures unlinkability and high recognition accuracy while being seven times faster than the traditional HE-based approach.

Curriculum vitæ

Amina Bassit received her BSc degree in discrete mathematics from Hassan II University (2013) and her MSc degree in cryptography from both Mohammed V University and Limoges University (2015). She was employed as a cryptographer at the DGSSI Morocco (2016-2019). Since April 2019, Amina has joined the DMB group and the SCS group of the University of Twente to design a biometric verification protocol in the encrypted domain. In May 2020, Amina started her Ph.D. as part of the PriMa (Privacy Matters) project, where she is investigating the integration of biometric recognition and homomorphic encryption with a special interest in security against malicious adversaries.

The International Face Performance Conference (IFPC) 2022

Date: 2022-11-15 - 2022-11-17 Location: Virtual Event

Organizer: National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) in collaboration with the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T) and European Association for Biometrics (EAB)
After registration, a link to access the conference will be sent in a separate email a few days before the conference starts.
Program: https://www.nist.gov/news-events/events/2022/11/international-face-performance-conference-ifpc-2022
Registration: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScTC04BMBAxqPD4wNe1VV7wrdYLQq8K61bCV95_1u7I6XC4WA/viewform

The IFPC 2022, takes place virtually, from November 15 until 17, 2022. The IFPC focuses on all technical factors affecting the deployment and use of high performance face recognition applications, including applications,standards, quality assessment,human aspects,demographic aspects, demographic effects, age and ageing effects, presentation attack detection, morphing datasets, their preparation, training and tuning, non-cooperative uses, accuracy measurement, and performance tests.

With support of the Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate, the conference aims to assemble speakers from all over the world involved in face recognition development, procurement, deployment as well as operations. The main aim of the IFPC is to bring greater maturity to face recognition by improving performance, transparency and trustworthiness.Furthermore, during this event,speakers have the opportunity to present proposals for technical or policy presentations which address problems that might influence face recognition operations and applications.The IFPC focuses on improving relevant factors concerning face recognition, including performance, transparency and trustworthiness.
