The fastest growing trend in today's digital world is the use of telemedicine by health care professionals incorporating the latest technology to access, aid, decide, diagnose and treat the patients irrespective of the distance barriers. This in particular would help the rural communities where the immediate access to medical facilities are not available. Since, the information transmitted about the patients is to be maintained confidential, images and other data about the patients need to be

To ensure the authentication of the user to access the database, password authentication followed by multimodal biometric fusion using finger vein and finger knuckle are incorporated in the proposed work. Further, authentication is strengthened by encrypting the fused image. The medical images are encrypted using Elliptic Curve Cryptographic (ECC) technique. Once the user is authenticated, he is allowed to access the medical image database
