Secure Usage and Trust of Mobile Devices in Networks for International Banking Environments

Secure Usage and Trust of Mobile Devices in Networks for international Banking Environments

Today customers want to check banking accounts as they check their emails to obtain an overview of their data and capital. Consultants need to have access to relevant information, if they visit customers at home, in restaurants or wherever the customers want to. Last but not least employees like administrators need to have access to the systems to manage them any time to guarantee a failure-free service. Current security features in such banking environments are limited to passwords, RSA-tokens as well as dedicated notebooks and dedicated telephone lines. The service for customers is limited to a small set of services. Goal of this project is to replace existing solutions and to unify and extend the services for customers and employees, especially for mobile environments. To achieve this goal research is divided into three factors. The first factor is called HardProf (Hardware-Profile) and means the exploration of different parameters of the hardware. The second factor is called EnvProf (Environment-Profile), which covers certain factors from the environment, like how many users are in the area and are connected to an access point to estimate the risk of becoming attacked. The last factor covers the mobile device itself and is called UserProf (User-Profile). Hereby the behaviour of the user will be examined, like pen or keyboard usage or the preferred mode of operation. The long-term goal is a security rating for mobile devices in an international banking environment.
