Inaugural Professorial Lecture: Nathan Clarke
  • Devonport Lecture Theatre, Portland Square Building, Plymouth University

Save event

Nathan Clarke, Professor in Cyber Security and Digital Forensics will be giving his Inaugural Professorial Lecture entitled 'Passwords, PINs and Biometrics - Developing more secure and convenient authentication technologies'.

The world of user authentication is focused upon developing technologies to solve the problem of point-of-entry identity verification. 

Unfortunately, authentication approaches: secret knowledge; tokens and biometrics, all fail to provide universally strong user authentication – with various well-documented failings existing. 

This inaugural lecture will discuss the research that has been undertaken at Plymouth to develop a fundamentally new approach that seeks to minimise the authentication burden placed upon users, yet improves the level of security currently being provided.

The lecture starts at 17:00 and will be followed by light refreshments. All welcome.
