Authentication using biometrics has an edge over traditional authentication mechanisms. Fuzzy vault is an eminent biometric cryptosystem technique that aims to protect a secret using a biometric template. Authorized users can, however, access the secret by providing the valid biometric. In a fuzzy vault, noise is incorporated in the form of chaff points in order to increase the security. While implementing fuzzy vault schemes in real scenarios, the most critical but computing-intensive and time-consuming task is chaff generation. In this paper, a neoteric method for chaff generation is proposed, which is less time-consuming in generating large numbers of chaff points.
