Data security is becoming more important in cloud computing. Biometrics is a computerized method of identifying a person based on a physiological characteristic. Among the features measured are our face, fingerprints, hand geometry, DNA etc. Biometric can fortify to store the cloud server using bio-cryptography. The Bio-cryptography key is used to secure the scrambled data in the cloud environment. The Bio-cryptography technique uses fingerprint, voice or iris as a key factor to secure the data encryption and decryption in the cloud server. In this paper, the security of the biometric system through cloud computing is discussed along with improvement regarding its performance to avoid the criminal to access the data. Biometric is a genuine feature for the cloud provider. Cryptography algorithm will be explained using blockchain technology to overcome security issues. The blockchain technology will provide more protection through cryptographic keys to secure biometric data.
