Document Verification System on iOS with Face ID/Touch ID
MetadataShow full item record
The level of digitalization in today’s society has contributed to both the private and public sector in several ways. Modern technologies allow for automated processes, electronic communication, cloud storage, and much more. These technologies provide significant benefits in various situations, although they do also come with some issues and vulnerabilities. The vulnerabilities that will be addressed in this thesis are the electronic identification of individuals and document authenticity. Managing sensitive information has become more secure in recent years with the introduction of new technologies that allow for electronic identification. The requirements for electronic identification vary from what information an individual is requesting, but the methods used today all have some form of vulnerability. A method that would provide further security is the use of biometrics, as biometrics are unique for every person, and is difficult to steal. Both fingerprint and face recognition can uniquely identify a person and are becoming standardized on most modern mobile devices. The purpose of this project is to design, implement, and evaluate a document verification system with globally distributed participants, that uses biometrics as the form of identification. Such a system would improve security and reliability to a vast selection of industry sectors, including banking, oil and gas, and validating certificates. The result of this project is presented in the form of an iOS application, DCApp, that uses biometrics to ensure a secure document verification system. A degree certificate system has been implemented for this sample application. Lastly, an evaluation of the performance and security of the system will be provided. The system is compared to current solutions and is discussed in the context of some use cases.
