Prof. Lu Leng  /Nanchang Hangkong University, China

LU LENG received his Ph.D degree from Southwest Jiaotong University, Chengdu, P. R. China, in 2012. He performed his postdoctoral research at Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea, and Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Nanjing, P. R. China. He was a visiting scholar at West Virginia University, USA, and Yonsei University, South Korea. Currently, he is a full professor at Nanchang Hangkong University. Prof. Leng has published more than 100 international journal and conference papers, including about 70 SCI papers and three highly cited papers. He has been granted several scholarships and funding projects, including five projects supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC). He serves as a reviewer of more than 100 international journals and conferences. His research interests include computer vision, biometric template protection and biometric recognition. Prof. Leng is an outstanding representative of "Innovation Talent" of Jiangxi Enterprise in "Science and Technology China" in 2021, received "Jiangxi Youth May Fourth Medal" in 2019, "Jiangxi Hundred-Thousand-Ten-thousand Talent Project" in 2018, "Jiangxi Voyage Project" in 2014, etc.

Biometric recognition is convenient and reliable, so it has been widely used for identification and verification. Hand biometric modalities, such as palmprint, palmvein, have several advantages, including high accuracy, good availability, high acceptability, etc. This speech introduces several advanced hand biometric recognition technologies. In addition, biometric key extraction is a promising scheme for biometric protection, which attempts to utilize biometric features as authenticators in cryptosystems rather than using conventional credentials, such as passwords. Cryptosystems request that the encryption key and decryption key be exactly identical; however, due to intra-class variance, it is highly difficult to extract the exactly identical biometric features directly as the key from the gallery and query biometric templates. This speech also introduces how to extract key from hand biometrics.
