VOICE AUTHENTICATION

A user- dependant pattern matching system which uses a person’s voice print to uniquely identify individuals using “Biometric Speaker Verification Technology”.

SEMINOR TITLE:

Voice Authentication

INTRODUCTION:
• uses voice prints and pattern recognition software to

verify a speaker
• relies on the fact that vocal characteristics are

unique for each individual
• more reliable than passwords

Need for Authentication:
• Identify theft and fraud • Caller authentication • Voice Authentication • To protect confidential client information and

fighting identity theft. • To reduce cost of help desks and customer contact centers.

Why Voice ?
Speaking is natural and effortless. But your voice is something that is unique to you. No two voices are exactly the same. Voice differs from other forms of biometric verification such as fingerprints or iris scans. It requires no special equipment. It works over any phone, anywhere, including the internet.

Working of Speech Analysis System: Captures a person's voice—the physical characteristics of the vocal tract and its harmonic and resonant frequencies—and compares it to a stored voice print created during an enrollment process.

«

«

Step1: User Enrollment
1.Customer enters his account or ID no., and then the system prompts him to speak a pass phrase (typically either a chore password or a series of digits) three times. 2.The speech analysis system applies a mathematical algorithm to the input to create a unique voice print. Having the user repeat the pass phrase enables the system to account for variances. 3.The voice print is stored in a speaker register database.

«

Step2: User Authentication
1. User enters or speaks his account ID and speaks the pass phrase. 2. The voice authentication system stores the input and compares it to the voice print in the speaker registry database. 3.If the voice matches, he/she is granted access, otherwise he/she is rejected.

Working of the speech analysis system:
«

Front-end consists of three main parts: * The Average Magnitude calculation module * The Zero-Crossing calculation module * The speech location determination module

«

Back End consists of: *Waveform warping module *A pattern-recognition module The back-end functions as a memory and storage database, as well as a decision unit that implements an algorithm to pattern match the template waveform (speaker’s voice) to that of the input waveform.

Web Authentication:
Security internet and other remote access services has never been more difficult or important. Passwords can be easily stolen and provide only a low level of security. Digital certificates only verify the actual computer accessing your service, not necessarily the person at the keyboard. Web authentication delivers the ultra high level of website access security and identifies protection required to protect confidential information and transactions.

«

Working:
• The user accesses the website login page. • The website automatically generates a unique session code which is displayed on the user screen, together with a phone number. • The user calls the voice system and is asked to speak their ID and session code. The user’s identity is voice verified. • Voice verification system sends the session code and verified user ID to the website server. The website server generates a ‘use once’ pass code which is sent back to Voice verification system. • Voice verification system’s text to speech engine converts the pass code into words spoken back to the user. • The user enters the use once pass code into the website login page to complete the process.

Voice Concerns
In real world this system has to deal with behavior and environmental factors such as background noises or changes in user voices.
