ComputerWorld quotes "An Arizona security company is working on an interesting approach to mobile authentication, one that leverages the exact angle a user holds the phone as a means of making replay attacks a lot more difficult."

An Arizona security company is working Aetna has been testing the method internally on an interesting approach to mobile authentication, one that leverages the exact angle a user holds the phone as a means of making replay attacks a lot more difficult. Next time, you could just a selfie to authenticate yourself in front of your boss?

The security is to be incorporated for an enterprise is in beta testing.

The idea is, once the user opens the app on a mobile device — where the more robust authentication kicks in — and uses it to scan a QR code on a desktop device. It also allows for users to authenticate themselves by scanning a driver's license or passport, with the phone noting the exact distance and angle of the phone and its camera to again try to block a replay attack.

Seems like, authenticator and the much-maligned texting of confirmation codes, this approach does away with the user having to type in any digits or characters. Not only does this no-text approach reduce the burden on the user as well as avoid the risk of typos. Talk about issues with misspells or forgetting the password at all.

The best of all, "if you're not typing, a keylogger can't listen in" and capture the keystrokes.

From a mobile security perspective, leveraging as many of those tracking elements as possible is where there is so much authentication potential. Among the mobile authentication factors it is considering are "operational parameters of the camera or an imaging sensor of the imaging device at the time an image is captured or a barcode is scanned," the application said.

To give me a very high level glimpse of this, say "for instance, as you are aware that camera (may) typically include the exposure time, ISO speed rating, focal length, use of flash, light balancing, resolution, or any other information that may be varied with time, environment conditions such as lightening, orientation or position of the camera. The user device may have one or more sensors on-board the device to provide instantaneous positional and attitude information of the imaging device.

The authentication can potentially include, the positional and attitude information provided by sensors such as a location sensor, inertial sensors (e.g., accelerometers, gyroscopes, inertial measurement units (EVIUs)), altitude sensors (e.g., compasses), pressure sensors (e.g., barometers), and/or field sensors (e.g., magnetometers, electromagnetic sensors) and the like."

The mobile security has been taken way too seriously. The security is higly beefed up to eleavate the way we operate in this digital world. What do you think, the technology we are in can be blessing in disguse or turning into bane?
