Grants, Sponsored Research and Contracts

Tappert, C. (2018, June). IBM 2018 Faculty Award.
IBM , Private , $15,000.00 . Funded,

Tappert, C. (2014). Mobile Phone Security.
Verizon , Private , $100,000.00 . Funded,Smartphone users store a variety of sensitive information and provide access to sensitive functionality. Users can have dozens of passwords to remember for accessing smartphones and sites for online banking, online shopping, and social networking. We have reached the point where we need alternatives to the usual username/password access procedure. Today's smartphones have many embedded sensors that can be used for unique authentication mechanisms to unlock phones without entering a password. The focus of this project is to investigate such authentication mechanisms and make inroads toward developing a unique one.
