A New Model for Accessing Distributed Systems by Using Fingerprint as a Password

A New Model for Accessing Distributed Systems by Using Fingerprint as a Password
It is recognised that, how things stand at present, distributed systems in general and the internet specifically do not benefit from adequate security systems, with password-based methods deemed insufficient. Furthermore, with this particular approach, users are required to remember many different passwords-with individuals commonly required to have 15-20 different details to memorise. Accordingly, the need is raised as to how a more efficient and reliable method can be implemented which does not rely on a sequence of characters, but which rather on a unique technology utilised only by the individual. With this in mind, it is noteworthy to acknowledge that there are already such services in application, but which are nevertheless viewed as being inadequate under such circumstances. Essentially, it is recognised that there are three fundamental criteria needing to be fulfilled by internet users: convenience and ease of use; freedom from memorising many passwords; and security. With these in mind, this study seeks to provide a solution to these issues through the implementation of system: FingerID. Accordingly, this paper seeks to provide a significant contribution in the fact that it has the potential to transform the way in which security over the internet is achieved.

Abstract

It is recognised that, how things stand at present, distributed systems in general and the internet specifically do not benefit from adequate security systems, with password-based methods deemed insufficient. Furthermore, with this particular approach, users are required to remember many different passwords-with individuals commonly required to have 15-20 different details to memorise. Accordingly, the need is raised as to how a more efficient and reliable method can be implemented which does not rely on a sequence of characters, but which rather on a unique technology utilised only by the individual. With this in mind, it is noteworthy to acknowledge that there are already such services in application, but which are nevertheless viewed as being inadequate under such circumstances. Essentially, it is recognised that there are three fundamental criteria needing to be fulfilled by internet users: convenience and ease of use; freedom from memorising many passwords; and security. With these in mind, this study seeks to provide a solution to these issues through the implementation of system: FingerID. Accordingly, this paper seeks to provide a significant contribution in the fact that it has the potential to transform the way in which security over the internet is achieved.
