Project title: Enhancement of Authentication Protocols through Biometric Authentication on Mobile Devices
Project description: Mobile devices are distributed to a large number of users. Offering usable security features would increase the level of protection for accessing sensitive information that resides on the mobile devices.
Thus, these security features could be integrated and implemented in the mobile devices providing more reliable and trusted authentication mechanism that could be used to uniquely identify a mobile user to a a secure system. Biometric identification has the potential to reduce computer fraud, however, reliable and foolproof systems are still a long way off. This suggests that more efforts and investigation must be put on biometrics research because there will surely be increasing demand for reliable security systems. The main goal of my research is to develop secure and efficient authentication mechanisms that exploit the use of biometric authentication on a mobile device to provide a strong authentication method in accessing sensitive services.
