Bioveillance: The Surreptitious Analysis of Physiological and Behavioral Data SkyDogCon 2012 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Bioveillance: The Surreptitious Analysis of Physiological and Behavioral Data
SkyDogCon 2012

 Dr. Noah Schiffman

Biometric security—“the something you are”—has become one of the largest growing areas of the security industry. The use of biometric authentication requires critical and irrevocable personally identifiable information. Developments in image acquisition techniques and advances in sensors allow one to remotely capture and collect human traits--a means of biometric surveillance. The constant acquisition, aggregation, and multi-modal fusion of physiological (facial recognition) and behavioral (gait analysis) biometric data create numerous vulnerabilities to personal privacy. Combined with affective computing, the subjective interpretation of one’s intent is becoming a quantitative metric. This presentation will address new methods of non-cooperative biometric data acquisition, its use in behavioral categorization, and the subsequent threats posed to our privacy and individuality.

With 20+ years of industry experience, Noah Schiffman is a former hacker turned security consultant, specializing in pen-testing, threat assessment, and security integration. With degrees in cognitive psychology and mechanical engineering, he has worked on designing authentication/access control systems and improving security usability. After receiving a doctorate in medicine, his research and development have encompassed biometric technologies and medical device security. He has spoken at security conferences, such as ToorCon, InfoSeCon, CarolinaCon, and SOURCE Boston, and has been a frequent contributing writer for Network World and SearchSecurity.com. Currently, he is the CSO for a defense contractor in SC and an independent security consultant.
