Multimodal Biometric

System for Continuous Authentication of Online Users

Identification of users in online or web services

Nowadays, the identification of users in online or web services is linked to a previous user assignment and password. Using Internet services, people can communicate and relate without the obligation to prove their identity, using pseudonyms, false identities or impersonating another person. With or without the user’s consent, any information can trigger identity theft since the keys can be shared, stolen or lost. 

Virtual campuses and e-learning platforms have exponentially increased their number of students/users in recent years. One of the biggest problems of the entity offering courses is the uncertainty of not knowing who is taking the path on the other side of the computer screen. Thus certifying the title that the student will receive. At Smiley Owl Tech S.L (hereinafter Smowltech), we detected that this problem is critical in online teaching.
