Title: Multi-Factor Authentication Using Hardware Information and User Profiling Techniques
Author(s): Adeeb Alnajjar, Helge Janicke
Keywords: Authentication, Profiling, Multi Factor Authentication,
Abstract: This paper presents a multi-factor authentication approach that extends traditional username-password authentication with hardware and user behaviour proling techniques. The aim of the approach is to improve the reliability of authentication by computing trust and condence scores against user proles. Based on the level of trust, the access control mechanisms may then choose to (un-)lock certain functions or even classify the access as an attack and redirect the user to a honey-pot to gather additional information about the attacker that can be used for a trace-back. The novelty of the approach is that it observes the correlation between users' behaviours and their hardware usage as implicit verication procedures to discriminate the usage of the user-name and password entry.
