Location sensing to manage identity risk
Smeeton, Richard (2014) Location sensing to manage identity risk. [Dissertation (University of Nottingham only)]
This project proposes that correlating location sensing data obtained from mobile devices with cloud-based identity management services provides a novel and potentially valuable opportunity to reduce risk of identity theft and associated fraud. Location information is readily provided by mobile devices through a combination of global positioning, wireless triangulation and IP address association. These data may therefore serve as additional authentication factors during posture assessment of credentials, simplifying access whilst at the same time increasing security.
