Authentication based on gestures with smartphone in hand

Juraj Varga – Dominik Švanda – Marek Varchola – Pavol Zajac

   We propose a new method of authentication for smartphones and similar devices based on gestures made by user with the device itself. The main advantage of our method is that it combines subtle biometric properties of the gesture (something you are) with a secret information that can be freely chosen by the user (something you know). Our prototype implementation shows that the scheme is feasible in practice. Further development, testing and fine tuning of parameters is required for deployment in the real world.

Keywords: smartphone, accelerometer, gestures, gyroscope, access control
