Biometric based access control system acts as a weapon against the challenges for reliable authentication mechanism. Although there are many advantages of biometric system, still it is vulnerable to attacks, which decline its security. This leads to propose a new approach to address these open issues and challenges for biometric data security. Smart card have been already used in past with various degree of success to store biometric credentials. Match-on-card biometric framework locks the biometric data inside the microcontroller of the smart card, which leads to minimal risks if card is lost or stolen. It is fast and accurate, balancing security and convenience by never exchanging user data outside the system of smart card and performs fingerprint enrollment as well as matching within a tamperproof environment of smart card.
