Software based solution to verify people through performing an identification hand movement holding a Smartphone.
Biometrics, Biosignal and Security Group (GB2S), located within the integrated Domotics Center (CeDInt) of the Technological University of Madrid (UPM), has developed a biometric verification system of people through their smartphones. For verification, people have to make a gesture in the air while holding mobile phone in hand. This gesture identification can be invented by people, who can also select their handwritten signature made in three dimensions. The results obtained by this method achieved accuracy rates close to 98% against forgery in several experiments in which was recorded and analyzed a person performing his signature in the air. This result greatly improves current verification systems for mobile phones, where, if it were to record a person writing his PIN, the verification system would break.
This technology provides a software solution for the verification of people using a Smartphone. The only requirement is a mobile phone with an accelerometer, through which capture the movements of the repetition of signatures in the air. In-Air Signature achieve. Having a low computational cost and an architecture where all processing is done on the mobile device, resulting in real-time verification.
On the other hand, this technology with reduced deployment cost has a wide range of application to different sectors and combination with other technologies.
“The proposed technological solution is a big improvement in security verification systems on mobile phones”
“The mobile payment, as well as, applications and adoption of smartphones are a high growth market in which this solution presents low cost, easy integration with other applications and high security”
