A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts

	Title		: Biometric based Digital Signature scheme
	Author(s)	: R. Nagpal, S. Nagpal
	Filename	: draft-nagpal-biometric-digital-signature-00.txt
	Pages		: 6
	Date		: 13-May-02
Digital Signatures are fast emerging as a viable information security
solution, satiating the objectives of data integrity, entity 
authentication, privacy, non-repudiation and certification. 
The technique, as it stands today, faces the problem of the 
maintenance of the secrecy of the private key. This document provides 
a conceptual framework for the establishment of a biometric-based key 
generation scheme. In this scheme, the private key is generated each 
time a document or record requires to be signed. Such generation is 
based upon a combination of biometric traits.
