Abstract: We address in this paper the problem of privacy in the current architecture in electronic passports for the storage and transmission of biometric data such as fingerprints. The current architecture provides a good protection of biometric personal data but brute force attack could be used in the near future using cloud computing. We propose a new solution combining cryptographic protocols and cancellable biometrics to solve this problem. The biocode of an individual is protected by cryptographic keys exchanged by the PACE protocol. We put into obviousness the benefit of the proposed solution in terms of security and privacy.
