Biometric discretization is a process of transforming continuous biometric features of an identity into a binary bit string. This paper mainly focuses on improving the global discretization method - a discretization method that does not base on information specific to each user in bitstring extraction, which appears to be important in applications that prioritize strong security provision and strong privacy protection. In particular, we demonstrate how the actual performance of a global discretization could further be improved by embedding a global discriminative feature selection method and a Linearly Separable Subcode-based encoding technique. In addition, we examine a number of discriminative feature selection measures that can reliably be used for such discretization. Lastly, encouraging empirical results vindicate the feasibility of our approach.
