Multi-Layered Multimodal Biometric Authentication for Smartphone Devices

Qurban A Memon


As technological advances in smartphone domain increase, so are the issues that pertain to security and privacy. In current literature, multimodal biometric approach is addressed at length for purpose of improving secured access into personal devices. Moreover, most of the financial institutions such as banks, etc. enforce two or three step access into their corporate data to enforce security. However, personal devices currently do not support similar applications or way of enforcing multilayered access to its different domains/regions of data. In this paper, a multilayered multimodal biometric approach using three biometric methods (such as finger print, face and voice) is proposed for smartphones. It is shown that fusion of biometric methods can be layered to enforce secured access to private data on smartphone. The experimental results are presented.
