Abstract

Wearable devices are often used as the preferred platform to collect personal data such as daily activity and biometric information. Such information should be treated with care because of privacy issues. Only a few authentication mechanisms are available for wearables owing to difficulties in the implementation of an effective mechanism on a small device. In this paper, a new method for password generation and authentication is proposed for wearable devices. The proposed force sensor activated authentication method is applicable to wearable devices with or without a display and provides more expressive password combinations than traditional personal identification number and pattern based approaches. In addition, the proposed approach provides effective protection against shoulder surfing attacks by introducing a second layer of protection using hidden force levels.
