Formatted Abstract/Summary
Biometric systems are generally restricted to specialist deployments and require expensive equipment. However, the world has recently experienced the widespread rollout of cheap biometric devices in the form of smart phones and tablets. One of the main drivers for mainstream adoption of biometric technologies is the need to address continuing problems with authenticating to online systems. These mobile devices may now be suitable to provide biometric-based authentication to a wide user population. This chapter discusses the different ways that face recognition can be used on smart mobile devices. The authors highlight the online authentication problem and show how three-factor authentication can address many pressing issues. They also discuss the ways that such a system could be attacked, and focus on replay attacks which have yet to be seriously addressed in the literature. The authors conclude with a brief examination of the current research into addressing replay attacks.
