Accurate and automatic identification and verification of users are essential in all system. Shared secrets like Personal Identification Numbers or Passwords and key devices such as Smart Cards are not presently adequate in few situations. What is necessary is a system that could authenticate that the person is the person. The biometrics is improving the capability to recognize the persons. The usage of biometrics system permits the identification of a living person according to the physiological or behavioral features to be accepted without human involvement. The construction of cryptographic key from biometrics is used to make safe our system. To implement this concept, sender’s recent fingerprint would be used to construct key by combining it with the information. For key decryption, the sender’s Database fingerprint images, which are previously kept by receiver’s end, would be used.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
