Abstract

Spurred by the advent of cloud computing, the domain of verifiable computations has known significant progress in recent years. Verifiable computation techniques enable a client to safely outsource its computations to a remote server. This server performs the calculations and generates a proof asserting their correctness. The client thereafter simply checks the proof to convince itself of the correctness of the output. In this paper, we study how recent advances in cryptographic techniques in this very domain can be applied to biometric verification.
