MetadataShow full item record
During last several decades’ mobile communication has aimed a dramatically development, and brought remarkable change of people’s life. Mobile communication offer wireless connectivity that enables mobility and computing in dynamic communication environments. The market demands driving the mobile communication technology development fast ever. Numbers of communication systems have been developed and numerous service providers and equipment vendors entered this market. Therefore many new advance techniques have been introduced into it which gives subscriber a larger bandwidth, more powerful processing capability, and advances in computing technology. The rapid growth of mobile and wireless communication technology not only brought convenience to people’s ordinary life, but also brought high risk of security issue. From subscriber to network operator, even mobility feature can have serious security problems. On the other hand, pattern recognition maintains a good development and has already been applied in our daily life; hand writing is one of the most important applications which already been used in a lot of mobile device such as: mobile phone, PDA, and lap-top. In this thesis, we address the mobile communication security issue in authentication and access control. We will proposal a possible combination of hand writing and hand drawing pattern recognition with modem mobile communication system such as GSM and Wireless LAN to improve the security capability to protect the system from security attack such as dictionary attack.
