Phoneme spotting for speech-based crypto-key generation Chapter in Scopus uri icon


  • In this research we propose to use phoneme spotting to improve the results in the generation of a cryptographic key. Phoneme spotting selects the phonemes with highest accuracy in the user classification task. The key bits are constructed by using the Automatic Speech Recognition and Support Vector Machines. Firstly, a speech recogniser detects the phoneme 'limits in each speech utterance. Afterwards, the support vector machine performs a user classification and generates a key. By selecting the highest accuracy phonemes for a a set of 10, 20, 30 and 50 speakers randomly chosen from the YOHO database, it is possible to generate reliable cryptographic keys. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2005.
