Smart, secure and seamless access control scheme for mobile devices

Rahulamathavan, Y., Rajarajan, M. & Phan, R. C. W. (2016). Smart, secure and seamless access control scheme for mobile devices. 2016 IEEE International Conference on Communications, ICC 2016, pp. 1088-1093. doi: 10.1109/icc.2016.7510837


Smart devices capture users' activity such as unlock failures, application usage, location and proximity of devices in and around their surrounding environment. This activity information varies between users and can be used as digital fingerprints of the users' behaviour. Traditionally, users are authenticated to access restricted data using long term static attributes such as password and roles. In this paper, in order to allow secure and seamless data access in mobile environment, we combine both the user behaviour captured by the smart device and the static attributes to develop a novel access control technique. Security and performance analyses show that the proposed scheme substantially reduces the computational complexity while enhances the security compared to the conventional schemes.
