Abstract

Scope: By using biometrics technologies developed at our center, we have designed a continuous authentication system using multi-model imagery such as iris and face data. Unlike conventional user identification systems, we constantly monitor and recognize a valid user while accessing a secured system. If the person leaves or an unauthorized person tries to access the computer the computer, the system will automatically lock down. It will also lock the computer when it ceases to see an authorized person in front of the computer.

Outcomes: Continuous authentication system using multi-model imagery such as iris and face data
