Paper Abstract

This paper on multi-modal continuous identity authentication contains four main sections. The first section describes the security issue we are addressing with the use of continuous identity authentication and describes the research our laboratory has been doing with different types of passive physiological sensors and how the multi-modal sensor data can be applied to continuous identity authentication. The second section describes a pilot study measuring temperature, GSR, eye movement, blood flow and click pressure of thirteen subjects performing a computer task. The third section gives preliminary results that show continuous authentication of identity above 80 percent was possible using discriminant analysis with a limited set of all of the measures for all but two subjects. The fourth section discusses the results and the potential of continuous identity authentication.
