Workshop on Authentication beyond Desktops and Smartphones


Much of the research on authentication in the past decades focused on developing authentication mechanisms for desktop computers and smartphones with the goal of making them both secure and usable. At the same time, the increasing number of smart devices that are becoming part of our everyday life creates new challenges for authentication, in particular since many of those devices are not designed and developed with authentication in mind. Examples include but are not limited to wearables, AR and VR glasses, devices in smart homes, and public displays.

The goal of this workshop is to develop a common understanding of challenges and opportunities smart devices and environments create for secure and usable authentication. Therefore, we will bring together researchers and practitioners from HCI, usable security, and specific application areas (e.g., smart homes, wearables) to develop a research agenda for future approaches to authentication.
