This chapter provides a summary of iris biometric template protection schemes. A review and discussion of state-of-the-art approaches is presented, based on which an outlook to future prospects is given. In addition, we provide a detailed insight into the construction of two prominent iris biometric template protection schemes in particular, the fuzzy vault scheme and the bin-combo scheme. Both schemes are evaluated and compared on a publicly available iris database with respect to provided privacy protection and biometric performance.
