“The researchers will investigate face and fingerprint biometrics, as well as behavioral biometrics related to device interaction – a nascent form of biometrics that appears to be gaining momentum.”

 

Together with a team of other European universities, Kent’s School of Engineering and Digital Arts has won the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Integrated Training Network (ITN) grant, valued at €2.5 million. Kent’s deputy leader of the department, Dr. Richard Guest, will lead the team, which will include researchers from the Warsaw University of Technology, Germany’s Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Italy’s Roma Tre University, and Spain’s Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, which has previously tested mobile fingerprint scanning technology at the behest of Oslo-based NEXT Biometrics.

The researchers will investigate face and fingerprint biometrics, as well as behavioral biometrics related to device interaction – a nascent form of biometrics that appears to be gaining momentum.

The news comes just as the UK government has announced its UK National Cyber Security Strategy, which involves FIDO-based authentication, and will therefore also likely incorporate biometrics. The country’s government and academic leadership are evidently keen to get a solid footing in these areas as digital security awareness continues to ris
