Description

Cloud technologies have revolutionized the way we store information and perform various computing tasks. With the rise of this new technology, the ability to secure information stored on the cloud becomes a concern.

The Handbook of Research on Securing Cloud-Based Databases with Biometric Applications explores the latest innovations in promoting cloud security through human authentication techniques. Exploring methods of access by identification, including the analysis of facial features, fingerprints, DNA, dental characteristics, and voice patterns, this publication is designed especially for IT professionals, academicians, and upper-level students seeking current research surrounding cloud security.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Big Data
  • Feature Extraction
  • Human Authentication
  • Image Processing
  • Information Privacy
  • Information Security
  • Machine Vision

Reviews and Testimonials

Computer and information scientists describe various biometric authentication technologies with a focus on cloud databases and deliberate on research trends and applications of biometrics in security. Among the topics are recent trends in cloud computing security issues and their mitigation, an efficient KDC scheme for verifiable response in heterogeneous cloud storage, analyzing the security susceptibilities of biometrics integrated with cloud computing, trusted cloud-based and femtocell-based biometric authentication for mobile networks, and detecting and preventing intrusion into the flow of big data using bacterial foraging. The information could be useful for practitioners, researchers, and students in information technology security, bioinformatics, and cloud computing.
