Roman Kessler successfully defended his Master’s Thesis on ‘Analysis of face embeddings to facilitate image pre-selection for face morphing’ Face Morphing Attacks pose a novel threat to the security of identification documents. The fusion of the face images of two
Sam Afzal-Houshmand defended his Master thesis on “Information fusion in large-scale biometric identification systems”
The increased use of biometrics due to interest and acceptance have necessitated the development of accurate and efficient systems. This development is relevant to deal with large-scale systems whose usage have a trajectory to be increased further in the futures
Jascha Kolberg defended his Master's thesis on 'Efficient Homomorphic Encryption to Protect Iris Codes for Biometric Authentication'
Abstract: Biometric recognition systems provide a reliable and automatic way for users to authenticate themselves since they do not need to remember a password or carry a token. However, since biometric data are considered personal and sensitive data, privacy issues
Søren Steen defended his Master's thesis on 'Deep learning for speaker recognition in noisy environments'
Abstract: Speaker recognition is an emerging biometric field for areas in IT-security, such as online banking, access control, call center user validation, and consumer electronics. Speaker recognition is interesting due to the universal presence of microphones in mobile devices, and
Kristina Schäfer defended her Master's thesis on 'Behavioural Data Analysis for Smartphone User Verification'
Abstract: People store more and more sensitive data on their phone and use it for sensitive services such as banking or e-commerce. To protect their personal data the phone has to ensure a certain level of security. Most often methods
Kiran Bylappa Raja defended his doctor thesis on "Robust Biometric Verification based on the Eye Region – Algorithms for Visible Spectrum Image Data"
Abstract: Popular mobile banking and e-commerce applications like Google Wallet, Apple Pay and Ali Pay have resulted in using personal devices like smartphones for secure access of services via biometric data captured from embedded sensor. Further, the improved optics on
MP4 File Carving (in cooperation with Fraunhofer SIT) Reconstruction of files from a storage medium without utilization of file system information is a conventional technique deployed to extract hidden or lost sets of data. Common so-called file carving algorithms, which
Traditional signatured-based Malicious Software (malware) detection systems, which are based on files stored on disk, nowadays are often called to be obsolete. The vast number of different possibilities to obfuscate a malicious executable are a huge problem for these detection
Christian Massinger defended his Master's thesis on 'Forensische Analyse von Smartphone Messengern am Beispiel von Whatsapp und Telegram'
In recent years, the increasing usage of smartphones has influenced the relevance of smartphone messenger like WhatsApp. As a consequence, the importance of the SMS as a communication service is decreasing. The messengers evolve constantly from an merely text messaging
The thesis project began by reviewing literature within the area of iris recognition in the visible wavelength to learn what had been done and which challenges that still needs to be solved, before a reliable recognition system can be created
