Research in Progress
Continuous User Authentication on Smartphones
To ensure high security on smartphones, it is necessary to increase the level of authentication beyond the standard point-of-entry technique. To this end, we plan to develop a user authentication scheme based on behavioral biometrics, which continuously authenticates users during phone usage rather than simply at the beginning of a session. Specifically, we will be using keystroke dynamics (how a user types on a keypad), touch screen dynamics (how a user interacts with the touch screen (finger pressure, finger tip size, etc.), physics of the device (how a user carries/holds a phone), and linguistic profiling (how a user writes vocabulary and text) to authenticate a user.
Smartphone Security using Body Parts and Voice
To strengthen the user authentication in Smartphone, we plan to develop a biometric authentication system which uses the capacitive sensor of touchscreen and voice recorder of a smartphone. While capacitive fingerprint scanners which are integrated in recent mobile phones require high quality and expensive sensors, our methodology focus on the touchscreen as the image sensor. Using the touchscreen we can scan users’ body parts, such as ears, palms, and fists. We also incorporate voice recorders to improve the user identification when the user places the touchscreen on his ear to accept an incoming phone call.
Enhancing Multi-biometric Security Systems
Multi-biometric verification systems can be classified into two categories: (1) parallel fusion based and (2) serial fusion based. Though a parallel fusion based system gives high accuracy, its applicability is questionable in many real world applications because of its longer verification time. In contrast, serial fusion can take less time to give a verification decision and thus can provide user convenience. Hence, a serial fusion based system can be a good trade-off between user convenience and accuracy. However, these systems have been poorly investigated. Hence, we plan to investigate these systems and develop a new serial fusion based verification scheme.
