Mimicry attack on strategy-based behavioral biometric

Roman V. Yampolskiy, University of Louisville


Biometrie security measures are becoming a popular approach to securing computer systems, computer networks, as well as access to workplaces and recreational facilities. Unfortunately biometric systems can be a target of impersonation attacks, making their security questionable. In this paper we concentrate on ways of spoofing behavioral biometrics and analyze the types of spoofing attacks which can be employed against biomeric systems. The concept of strategy-based behavioral biometrics is introduced followed by our experimental results from spoofing security systems based on strategy-based biometric technology. Finally an existing methodology is suggested to counteract spoofing attacks against behavior-based biometric systems. © 2008 IEEE.
