Abstract -
In this paper, we base our research on biometric systems security. We begin by introducing biometrics after which we will describe how a biometric system works before we later define what a biometric template is. Thereafter, we will explore attacks on biometric systems and lay more emphasis on biometric template attacks and explore attacks targeting biometric templates in a biometric system database. These attacks motivated us to study the existing biometric template protection schemes and techniques currently in use to determine their strengths and weaknesses. In the end, we summarize this study in the conclusion section of the paper.
