Abstract – Biometric cryptosystems used for securing a cryptographic key by using some biometric features. The popularity of biometrics introduces privacy risks. The helper data and unimodel biometrics are used to protect the biometric template effectively. In parallel to these developments, fusion of multiple sources of biometric information has shown to improve the verification performance of the biometric system.  The practical and secure way to integrate the multi biometric into cryptographic applications. Three approaches of extracting ridge feature points, texture features, and Region of Interest properties from fingerprint and face gives the optimal solution. Multibiometric cryptosystem provides defended security and better attest accuracy. Previous works predominantly follows the fingerprint-based Single Biometric Cryptosystem using decision level fusion. In addition we construct face recognition along with finger-print as it provides better authentication.
