With data theft and computer break-ins becoming increasingly common, there is a great need for secondary authentication to reduce automated attacks while posing a minimal hindrance to legitimate users. CAPTCHA is one of the possible ways to classify human users and automated scripts. Though textbased CAPTCHAs are used inmany applications, they pose a(More)
Face recognition algorithms generally use 2D images for feature extraction and matching. In order to achieve better performance, 3D faces captured via specialized acquisition methods have been used to develop improved algorithms. While such 3D images remain difficult to obtain due to several issues such as cost and accessibility, RGB-D images captured by(More)
Videos have ample amount of information in the form of frames that can be utilized for feature extraction and matching. However, face images in not all of the frames are ”memorable” and useful. Therefore, utilizing all the frames available in a video for recognition does not necessarily improve the performance but significantly increases the computation(More)
Face recognition algorithms generally utilize 2D images for feature extraction and matching. To achieve higher resilience toward covariates, such as expression, illumination, and pose, 3D face recognition algorithms are developed. While it is challenging to use specialized 3D sensors due to high cost, RGB-D images can be captured by low-cost sensors such as(More)
Sketch recognition has important law enforcement applications in detecting and apprehending suspects. Compared to hand drawn sketches, software generated composite sketches are faster to create and require lesser skill sets as well as bring consistency in sketch generation. While sketch generation is one side of the problem, recognizing composite sketches(More)
CAPTCHA is one of the Turing tests used to classify human users and automated scripts. Existing CAPTCHAs, especially text-based CAPTCHAs, are used in many applications, however they pose challenges due to language dependency and high attack rates. In this paper, we propose a face recognition-based CAPTCHA as a potential solution. To solve the CAPTCHA, users(More)
Multimodal biometrics technology consolidates various information obtained from multiple sources at sensor level, feature level, match score level, and decision level. It is used to increase robustness and provide broader population coverage for inclusion. Due to the inherent challenges involved with featurelevel fusion, combining multiple evidences is(More)
The increasing use of smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices poses a significant challenge in providing effective online security. CAPTCHAs, tests for distinguishing human and computer users, have traditionally been popular; however, they face particular difficulties in a modern mobile environment because most of them rely on keyboard input and have(More)
