Using the smartphone accelerometer to access secure services

funded by: Fondazione CRF

The authentication phase for access to a secure service (home-banking) is based on the paradigm “what you know, what you have, what you are”. The project is part of this paradigm, focusing on the requirement of “what you have”, proposing a solution that exploits the distinctive intrinsic characteristics of the smartphone’s accelerometer sensor, which everyone always carries on, for the specific recognition of the user in transparent mode.
