Traditional password authentications are highly vulnerable to malicious attacks. On the other hand, two-factor authentications often require expensive technologies. We created an inexpensive two-factor authentication method that is both efficient and secured with publicly available APIs.
What it does
We created a website and Chrome extension that combines face and gestures recognitions for two-factor authentication of website logins. Through the webcam, the application compares user's face and identifies the correct user from the application's database. After the user's identity has been verified, the user then enter his or her password through the Myo Armband. If the user is authenticated, his or her login credentials will be filled automatically when visit certain websites.
