Passwords are still used on a daily basis for all kind of applications. However, they are not secure enough by themselves in many cases... This work enhances password scenarios through two-factor authentication asking the users to draw each character of the password instead of typing them as usual. The main contributions of this study are as follows: i) We present the novel MobileTouchDB public database, acquired in an unsupervised mobile scenario with no restrictions in terms of position, posture, and devices. This database contains more than 64K on-line character samples performed by 217 users, with 94 different smartphone models, and up to 6 acquisition sessions. ii) We perform a complete analysis of the proposed approach considering both traditional authentication systems such as Dynamic Time Warping (DTW) and novel approaches based on Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs). In addition, we present a novel approach named Time-Aligned Recurrent Neural Networks (TA-RNNs). This approach combines the potential of DTW and RNNs to train more robust systems against attacks. A complete analysis of the proposed approach is carried out using both MobileTouchDB and e-BioDigitDB databases. Our proposed TA-RNN system outperforms the state of the art, achieving a final 2.38% Equal Error Rate, using just a 4-digit password and one training sample per character. These results encourage the deployment of our proposed approach in comparison with traditional typed-based password systems where the attack would have 100% success rate under the same impostor scenario. read more
