Research Institution

During the Phase I of the project, we developed a system level architecture for end-to-end voice authentication and security in mobile phones. The core of our architecture is a protocol, MNGIsec, that for the first time provides NAT compatible end-to-endsecurity in mobile phone based communications. Based on our effort a provisional patent (60/315,234) has been filed. We have also overcome a security hole in mobile communications, that arises from lost devices containing keys for secure communication, byincorporating biometric authentication based on voice.There are some mobile phones in the market that incorporate security, but have not been very successful because of lack of end-to-end feature. Currently there are no mobile phones that supports biometrics based authentication or integrate biometrics withsecure communications. Our proposed solution will be the first product with true end-to-end authentication, security, and VPN functionality in mobile phones. Since our solution provides application independent security and authentication, there will be noneed to modify individual applications.Our Phase II goal is to deliver prototype software and hardware suitable for use in mobile phones. Dedicated hardware integrated into the mobile phones will improve system performance by in-line implementation of security protocols and speech dataprocessing.
