Exchanging pictures to generate passwords?
November 7th, 2008

Ileana Buhan, a Romanian computer scientist, has recently presented her PhD Thesis at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. She is using biometrics to protect confidential information when it is exchanged between two mobile devices. This is a very innovative approach to security. Buhan’s biometric application will generate almost unbreakable passwords from photos taken by the connected users. Here is how it works. ‘To do this, two users need to save their own photos on their PDAs. They then take photos of each other. The PDA compares the two photos and generates a security code for making a safe connection.’ But read more if you’re not convinced…
