A secure user authentication scheme for critical mobile applications

Abstract [en]

Smartphones have facilitated tasks in private and work life for its users. In business,

employees often should manage sensitive data that unauthorised people cannot access,

so some user authentication is needed to perform. Besides the normal user

authentication, some employers give the right to access to the sensitive data only if the

employees stay in specific locations. That makes sense for those businesses that have

various construction sites and offices that are not necessarily located in the same

geographical region. In those companies, the employees must be able to perform their

tasks from different locations regardless of the available network infrastructure.

To protect the data from intruders, this research presents a secure location-based user

authentication scheme for mobile application that works offline. This research considers

to enable access to the sensitive data using off-the-shelf mobile devices without adding

any extra hardware and with no additional information from a fixed infrastructure. This

Thesis firstly describes the architecture and attributes of the proposed solution. Then,

the techniques used for the design and functionality of the solution are presented. The

results of this study reveal that the proposed solution is more suitable for the

applications that is used in outdoor locations. Finally, to alleviate the shortcoming of the

presented technique for indoor locations, a new method has been discussed and tested.

This report is a final Thesis in collaboration with SAAB. The purpose of this research is

to examine the best way to protect sensitive data managed by the employees using their

smartphones in different workplaces.
