Ph.D. started in: 2016
Expected year of graduation: 2019
COINS consortium member: University of Oslo
Supervised by: Audun Jøsang
Research area: Authentication and Biometrics
Project title: Multimodal Biometrics in Identity and Access Management (IAM)
Project description: Our research will allow the authentication of banking transactions and secure access to services over broadband and mobile networks, using biometric identifiers. This can be extended to other eServices (E.g., eHealth). Biometric references will be stored, controlled and verified locally based on pre-shared secret, which can be used to seal and authenticate transaction data. This overcomes the need for centralized storage of biometric data. Furthermore, smartphones will act as hardware tokens to which the additional functionalities will be integrated to capture the biometric modalities like (2D face, fingerprint, voice and eye). Processes are designed to serve scalable security needs. The biometric authentication will be optimised in the transaction protocol design with guaranteed privacy compliant.
