Extracting binary strings from real-valued templates has been a fundamental issue in many biometric template protection systems. In this paper, we present an optimal bit allocation method (OBA). By means of it, a binary string at a pre-defined length with maximized overall detection rate is generated. Experiments with the binary strings and a Hamming distance classifier on FRGC and FERET databases show promising performance in terms of FAR and FRR.
