  • Nowadays, people use smart mobile devices such as smartphones and wearable devices everywhere they go. Smartphones have become such a vital tool for both productivity and entertainment that most people can’t live without them. Wearable devices such as smartwatches, smart bands, and smart glasses are slowly gaining traction in the consumer marketplace and infusing technology deeper into our daily life, augmenting people’s daily activities with information that matters to each individual.
    Due to the widespread usage of mobile devices for both personal and professional purposes, many people consider them to be private property. This means other people should not be able to freely gain access to their mobile devices, because they contain a lot of sensitive data. Therefore, security in mobile space is a very important research area with the potential to benefit millions of people in the world. A security system that protects owners from any breaches of privacy is needed to ensure the data inside mobile devices stays private.
    In this thesis, we propose a new system for securing mobile devices. We incorporate a multi-factor authentication method to provide high security. Our system also incorporates an implicit authentication method to continuously authenticate the user and prevent unauthorized individuals from accessing the mobile device. A prototype based on the proposed system is also constructed.
