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

NexID Biometrics acquisition finalized

After government approvals, Precise Biometrics has finalized the acquisition of the assets of liveness detection software developer NexID Biometrics. NexID Biometrics has extensive experience from processing and analyzing fingerprint images, and will become a vital part of Precise Biometrics research and development, strengthening the company`s position with competitive advantage, and creating opportunities for growth in the fingerprint technology market. The acquisition gives Precise Biometrics access to liveness detection software that stems from over 10 years of research by scientists on

Clarkson, Notre Dame and Warsaw University of Technology collaborate on iris liveness competition

Over the next couple of months, researchers at Clarkson’s Center of Identification Technology Research (CITeR), along with the University of Notre Dame and Warsaw University of Technology will be slipping on contact lenses in an attempt to fool iris recognition systems. Between the three schools, a world-wide iris recognition liveness competition will be held this summer; the findings of which will be presented at the IEEE conference on biometrics this fall. According to Clarkson University’s website, developers of iris recognition technology from around the world
