Personal statement

Jin Zhe obtained his BIT (Hons) in software engineering from Multimedia University, Malaysia and he joined in Multimedia University as an Assistant Lecturer/Tutor. One year after graduation, he commenced his study towards a master's degree in MMU and completed Master of Science in I.T. He took a Lecturer position at the same university.

Two years later, he left Multimedia University and pursued his PhD study at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman and completed PhD degree in engineering. After PhD study, he turned back to university as Assistant Professor at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman. Before his Malaysia venture, he hold a diploma in Business and worked at banking and IT industry in China for 6 years. Since 23 January 2017, he joined School of IT, Monash University Malaysia as a Lecturer.

Research Interests

My principal research interests focus on exploiting machine learning techniques, especiallyrobust hashing, for biometric (e.g. fingerprint, iris and voice) authentication systems toachieve higher level of security and privacy preserving. The well-known tools I haveinvestigated include Locality Sensitive Hashing, Spectral Hashing, and Random Projection
etc. Additionally, kernel methods (e.g. Kernel Principal Component Analysis, KernelizedLocality-Sensitive Hashing) are utilized for various biometric-based applications (e.g.convert variable size point data to fixed-length vector). Simultaneously, I also haveconducted investigation in security and privacy analysis for biometric systems, such as non-invertible analysis, non-linkability analysis, and secure authentication.

Research Projects

Title: Biometric Cryptosystems: bio-pin

In this project, we have developed a hybrid cancellable fingerprint based cryptosystem dubbed Bio-PIN. The system is essentially can be used for secret binding where the secret includes but not limited to private, public keys, hashed of message (for digital signature), transactional one-time pad, as well as for usual identity authentication purpose whereby PIN is the secrete in this circumstance. To be specific, we develop two essential modules for Bio-PIN, namely Index of Max (IoM) hashing as a means of cancellable biometrics and modified Fuzzy Vaults scheme for secrete (key) binding. Both of them are integrated sequentially to form a hybrid cancellable biometrics cryptosystem scheme, i.e. Bio-PIN. Fingerprint biometric is used as an input for this project but Bio-PIN is generic to be applied in any biometric form factors such as face, iris, palmprint etc. Bio-PIN is a two-factor cancellable biometric cryptosystem in which the user is expected to have both token and biometrics as input to the system
