Abstract: In the present world, the data security is the major problem. The data should be secured in such a way that only the sender and the receiver should be able to view the original data. Most of the traditional techniques that are being used today uses the generic functions, random key generators, or algorithms to generate the keys. But the keys generated using the traditional techniques will not be unique to each and every individual. So, the Biometric Cryptosystems can be used to achieve the data security. The Biometrics, such as fingerprints can be used for data security. Since the fingerprints of each and every individual in the world is unique, the keys generated using the fingerprints will be unique. In this work, the fingerprint of the individual is taken as the input to generate the prime numbers using the minutiae points. The generated prime numbers are then given as the input to the RSA algorithm to generate the keys. The generated keys are then used for the encryption and the decryption process.

Keywords: Fingerprint feature, Minutiae points, RSA algorithm, Cryptography, Data security
