Usability of Risk-based Implicit Authentication

07.06.2017 - Markus Duermuth

Our project Usability of Risk-based Implicit Authentication will receive funding through the North Rhine-Westphalian Graduate School “Human Centered Systems Security” (NERD NRW). The project studies the security and usability of so-called risk-based authentication, an additional layer that improves the security and usability of “traditional” password-based authentication. Also involved in the project is the Data & Application Security Group at TH Cologne.

We are looking for a highly qualified and motivated PhD student to work on the project. If you are interested please contact Prof. Dr. Dürmuth.
