Feature acquisition, processing and identification, Multimodal biometric systems, Privacy, authenticity and integrity of biometric templates, Biometric forensics, Attacks and countermeasures
Cryptography for multimedia: 
Signal encryption and decryption, Signal processing in the encrypted domain, Cryptanalysis, Hashing, Authentication codes, Visual encryption, Side-channel attacks
Watermarking and Data Hiding:
