Continous User Authentication

Security has always been a very important aspect, whether it may be personal or commercial usage. Normally systems have passwords for login to deter unwanted users from logging into the system. Experience tells us now that authenticating a user only at initial login session is not sufficient to keep off malicious intentions. A user may access the data from the system till the authenticated user logs out. Such problems are encountered probably when user takes a short break or when the user may not have logged out due to some reason. This is a critical issue as far as security is concerned especially for systems holding confidential information. In order to overcome this problem this paper proposes a continuous authentication scheme with continuous monitoring of the user. The proposed system uses soft biometric traits like face recognition, skin colour and the user’s clothing. This system automatically enrolls soft biometrics every time user logs in and fuses matching of soft biometric with conventional authentication namely the password and face biometrics. The proposed system will have a good tolerance if the user’s posture is mostly static when he or she is using the system..
