Application Security

User Authentication: Dr. Daji Qiao’s research focuses on biometric user authentication based on a unique combination of artificial intelligence and kinesthesis intelligence. Instead of training a machine learning algorithm to recognize a legitimate user, a hybrid type of training has been developed, in which the legitimate user is also trained to use a customized instance of the machine. This is a collaborative effort with Dr. Yong Guan (ISU CyIO), Dr. Ann Smiley (ISU Department of Kinesiology), and Dr. George Amariucai (Kansas State University). Related research findings have been reported in various security conferences, such as ACM ASIACCS:
