ESR 2: Continuous and Instantaneous Authentication using Mobile Devices

There are two main activities that were completed on this project. The first one was a study into how mobile behavioural biometrics data is collected and used in a scientific setting.

The second activity pursued was understanding how mobile behavioural biometrics data can be modelled and how a traditional biometrics framework can be used for subject verification using their behavioural biometric data. For this a program named BOB was used – an open-source signal processing framework developed by Idiap Research Institute.

What was achieved and the impact

The biometrics research community should be called to publish their collected data as well as detailing the protocols used, to enable other researchers to test their hypothesis, gain a better understanding of the entire biometrics field and develop their recognition algorithms. This project will be completed at a later stage.
