Encryption is an important aspect in data storage in today’s life. The necessity of securing highly classified military data, bank transactions, and personal data etc. multi layered security is a must. Symmetric or asymmetric key can be used for the process of encryption and decryption. Symmetric key uses the same secret key for encryption of text and decryption of ciphered text. There are existing systems, where with the help of biometric feature such as fingerprint is used to secure the data. The existing system has only one layer of security. The proposed system has three layers of security i.e. to retrieve the secret key, user has to provide his/her fingerprint, user-password and iris image of the user. Thus, providing two additional layer of security. Even if the fingerprint is lifted by an attacker to retrieve the secret key, he must get hold of password which only the user is aware of, and iris pattern of the user which is impossible to retrieve.
