Clarkson University students develop keystroke authentication methods, datasets

Three Clarkson University ECE undergraduate researchers — Christopher Murphy, Timothy Law, and Adam Sherwin — have developed methods and datasets for keystrokes authentication, which they have detailed in two research papers. The research papers, which the students co-authored, have both been peer reviewed and accepted by two renowned international conferences. The first paper, “Shared Dataset on Natural Human-Computer Interaction to Support Continuous Authentication Research,” by Christopher Murphy, Jiaju Huang (CU PhD student), Daqing Hou, and Stephanie Schuckers, has been presented

NSF awards grant for research to speed up biometrics data processing

The National Science Foundation has awarded a three-year grant to a team from Clarkson University researching computer engineering to deal with the heavy workloads demanded by biometrics. In a Tuesday announcement, Clarkson University said the grant will be used to acquire a heterogeneous high-performance computing cluster for use by a four-member research team. “Our project is a small-scale super computer with a lot of horsepower for computation ability,” said research team leader Chen Liu. “It has many servers, interconnected to

Professor says iris recognition gives smartphone users more options to protect devices

Stephanie Schuckers, a Clarkson University professor in engineering science and director for the Center for Identification Technology Research (CITeR), said she doesn’t “think it’s unreasonable to expect that we’ll see devices with iris recognition technology in the U.S. in the near future”. According to Schuckers, the near-infrared lights that iris recognition systems use to analyze the pattern of the muscles in the iris are used in many other technologies, including security systems. And while iris recognition technology has improved over

Clarkson University names biometric expert new engineering science professor

Clarkson University announced it has named biometrics expert Stephanie A. Schuckers the Paynter-Krigman professor in engineering science at the university’s Wallace H. Coulter School of Engineering. Prior to being appointed, Schuckers served as a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Clarkson University. She is also the director of the Center of Identification Technology Research, a National Science Foundation industry/university cooperative research center that focuses on biometrics and functions. Her research focuses primarily on processing and interpreting signals which stem
