We present AuthNet: a novel framework for generic biometric authentication which, by learning a regularized mapping instead of a classification boundary, leads to higher performance and improved robustness. The biometric traits are mapped onto a latent space in which authorized and unauthorized users follow simple and well-behaved distributions. In turn, this enables simple and tunable decision boundaries to be employed in order to make a decision. We show that, differently from the deep learning and traditional template-based authentication systems, regularizing the latent space to simple target distributions leads to improved performance as measured in terms of Equal Error Rate (EER), accuracy, False Acceptance Rate (FAR) and Genuine Acceptance Rate (GAR). Extensive experiments on publicly available datasets of faces and fingerprints confirm the superiority of AuthNet over existing methods.
