Abstract: An unobtrusive and non-contact continuous authentication system can potentially improve security throughout a login session. Traditional user authentication procedures such as fingerprint, password, or facial identification typically provide only an initial spot-check of identity at the start of a user session, potentially allowing undesired user changes or subsequent access to personal information. The research to be presented is focused on creating a non-contact continuous authentication system based on Doppler radar, which analyzes back-scattered RF signals which carry body motion information indicating a human subject’s vital signs (breathing rate, heart rate) and associated unique patterns. A key advantage of this radar technique is that continuous authentication is achieved without intrusive video imaging. While prior results focused on the use of respiratory motion to identify a single isolated subject, the challenge of resolving and identifying multiple subjects within the radar field of view is addressed here. This research introduces an SNR-based decision algorithm that coherently combines two separation methods to overcome multiple subject monitoring limits. The hybrid-approach system manages well-spaced subjects. those at the edge of the antenna beamwidth or beyond, using a Direction of Arrival (DOA) approach, and more closely spaced subjects by employing Independent Component Analysis with the JADE Algorithm (ICA-JADE) to isolate individual respiratory signatures. Additionally, highly distinguishable breathing dynamics related to hyper-features (inhale area, exhale area, and breathing depth) can be extracted from the radar-captured respiration patterns to facilitate individual subject identification. Extracted hyper feature sets for 20 subjects measured with a 24-GHz radar system were used to train and test two different popular machine learning classifiers (K-nearest neighbor (KNN) and Support vector machine (SVM)). SVM with quadratic kernel outperformed the other classifiers, with an accuracy of 97.5%.
Short Bio: Dr. Shekh Md Mahmudul Islam (Member, IEEE) received the B.Sc. (Hons.) and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Dhaka, Dhaka, Bangladesh, in 2012 and 2014, respectively.
