Machine Learning Algorithms In User Authentication Schemes

  title={Machine Learning Algorithms In User Authentication Schemes},
  author={Laura Pryor and Rushit Dave and Naeem Seliya and Evelyn R. Sowells Boone},
In the past two decades, the number of mobile products being created by companies has grown exponentially. However, although these devices are constantly being upgraded with the newest features, the security measures used to protect these devices has stayed relatively the same over the past two decades. The vast difference in growth patterns between devices and their security is opening up the risk for more and more devices to easily become infiltrated by nefarious users. Working off of…
