Biometrics are a commonly used approach to mitigate shortcomings of memory-based mechanisms such as passwords, PINs and unlock patterns. Face recognition and fingerprint scanning are increasingly used in smartphones while voice recognition is used to secure phone banking or voice-based assistants such as Alexa and Google Home. Despite their ease of use, biometrics come with security considerations such as non-revocability, public availability of traits and securing systems against imitation and presentation attacks.

The group’s research is focused both on exploration of novel biometrics (such as eye movements, touch dynamics or PPG) and analysing the security of existing systems.
