Human users find it difficult to remember long encryption keys, so researchers for a long time were looking at ways to use the user's biometric features instead of an unforgettable password or passphrase in an attempt to produce difficult and repeatable encryption keys. The aim of the research is to integrate the fluctuation of the user's vital features into the generated key in order to build the unpredictable key for an intruder who lacks important knowledge about the user's vital metrics.
