Invoking the biometric fingerprint system vulnerabilities - a precis of Malaysian evaluation scheme

Ever since biometric authentication was introduced in the 18th century, it has remained as one of the most promising and anxiety provoking technology. Will it be a dream of seamless authentication process or a nation’s nightmare? To resolve this contradicting feelings, necessary security assessments have to be carried out prior to the deployment, and one of it is to evaluate its operational environment. This paper represents the part and parcel of a local scheme adapting Common Criteria for evaluating the biometric authentication system for fingerprints. As it is essential to substantiate that these systems achieve an acceptable level of security, a test method was developed and executed using selection of scenarios that will trigger the vulnerabilities. Different kinds of spoofing materials were used to attack the system. Best practices to mitigate the risk associated with the threats are also presented.
