Title:

Quality of Biometric Data: Definition and Validation of Quality Metrics

Abstract:

The performance of biometric systems is related to the quality of biometric data used for enrollment and verification. In this talk, we address the problem of fingerprint quality assessment. We present some metrics from the literature and some developed at the GREYC research lab. The validation of metrics is also presented in order to allow the comparison of metrics.

Title:

ECG technology: Recent Advance in Biometrics, Challenges and Future Research Opportunities

 

Abstract:

Biometric recognition provides an automated security for identity recognition based on the physiological or behavioural characteristics. It becomes one of the hottest topics in technologies nowadays as it offers an essential improvement over usernames and passwords. Emerging innovations to mobile device, portable, wearable and other innovations are bringing biometrics to mainstream marketplaces.

Title:

Keystroke Dynamics and Soft Biometrics: User Identification Based On Typing Rhythms 

Abstract:

Keystroke dynamics is a viable and practical way as an addition to security for identity verification. It can be combined with passphrases authentication resulting in a more secure verification system. This talk presents a new soft biometric approach for keystroke dynamics. Soft biometrics traits are physical, behavioral or adhered human characteristics, which have been derived from the way human beings normally distinguish their peers (e.g. height, gender, hair color etc.). Those attributes have a low discriminating power, thus not capable of identification performance. Additionally, they are fully available to everyone which makes them privacy-safe.
