In this study, a generic treatment of how to generate biometric keys from binary biometric templates is presented. A context-based analysis of iris biometric feature vectors based on which stable biometric keys are extracted is proposed. Most reliable bits in binary iris codes are detected and utilised to construct keys from fuzzy biometric data. The proposed key-generation scheme is adapted to diverse iris biometric feature extraction algorithms, evaluated on a comprehensive database and compared against existing iris biometric cryptosystems. In addition, the scheme is extended to provide fully revocable biometric keys, long enough to be applied in generic cryptosystems. Experimental results confirm the soundness of the approach.
