Hong Kong professor develops authentication technique combining a password and lip motion recognition

Hong Kong professor develops authentication technique combining a password and lip motion recognition

A professor with Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU) has been awarded a Gold Medal with Congratulations of Jury at the 46th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva for an authentication technique combining a password and lip motion recognition, QS WOWNEWS reports.

Professor Cheung Yiu-Ming of HKBU’s Department of Computer Science won the award for his project titled “Lip-password: Double Security System for Identity Authentication.” It sets out a method for simultaneously matching password content and the behavioral characteristics of lip movement when the speaker says the password. In addition to providing two layers of security, the lip-reading authentication method is resistant to spoofing, and if effective regardless of speaker language or speech impairment.

Suggested uses for the technique include financial transactions, or enhancing system security in combination with other biometrics.

Florida State University researchers developed a method last year of reading lip gestures with smartphones using sonar as a liveness detection system.
