Scientist at Hong Kong testing first ever lip motion password

Report  Web desk : HONG KONG: A team of scientists from Hong Kong Baptist University have developed a new biometric authentication method that identifies someone through the motions of their lips. The technology involves matching the lip motion associated with saying your password to the user s lip characteristics. The researchers at the university s department of computer science claim that lip movement is unique to the individual. It cannot be easily impersonated and an impostor will be denied entry by the system. This biometric authentication method could provide an additional layer of security for access to programs or systems. The researchers have already obtained a patent for the method and expect to see it first deployed in financial transaction verification. They added that other use cases include ATM verification, mobile payments, and managing access to private premises. 02
