REMOTE HANDWRITTEN SIGNATURE AUTHENTICATION

Jarrod Trevathan, Alan McCabe

Abstract

This paper presents a secure real-time remote user authentication system based on dynamic handwritten signature verification. The system allows users to establish their identities to other parties in real-time via a trusted verification server. The system can be used to gain remote access to restricted content on a server or to verify a signature on a legal document. State of the art dynamic verification techniques are combined with proven cryptographic methods to develop a secure model for remote handwritten signature verification.
