A Novel Secure Routing Protocol based on Retina Biometric Authentication

R. Sudha, M. Devapriya


The development of the internet in the recent years leads to the security and authentication of users data. It is still a challenging problem in the Wireless Body Sensor Network (WBSN). It is important to protect the personal medical and health information collected by the biosensors. To protect the physiological data biometric authentication is implemented on physical features to provide privacy. Biometric field recently works on reduce in process delay and enhances the level of accuracy. WBSN authenticates systems works based on retina intrinsically of physiological and behavioral characteristics of persons. It provides solutions to network security problems by replacing the authentication component of the traditional systems. The experimental results shows that by implementing BFTASR protocol on retina authentication performance proves that more secure than existing approach.
