Conférence du Professeur Ernst Leiss intitulée : "Access Control: Authentication Methods"

Vendredi 7 Décembre 208 à 10h

A l'occasion de la visite du Professeur Ernst Leiss, University of Houston - USA and Distinguished ACM Speaker, à l'ENSIAS, il donnera une conférence intitulée "Access Control: Authentication Methods", ce vendredi 7 décembre 2018 à 10H00 dans l'Amphi II


This talk focuses on methods of authenticating users. The standard approaches use either passwords or biometrics. We review and compare both approaches; each has its advantages and disadvantages. However, it is crucial to understand that if a password is compromised, it can be replaced, but if biometrics are compromised, they cannot be replaced. We discuss different attacks and possible defenses; however, the sniff-and-suppress attack requires significant resources that are often not available. This provides the starting point for a reexamination of password generation schemes. We conclude with an approach, secure vestibule, that guards against keystroke capturing (spyware) when entering a password.
