This post is a reference to a contributed article that I helped to co-author which was recently published in Communications of the ACM, Vol. 59 No. 4, Pages 58-65. The article, which I worked on while in graduate school, describes the advantages of using multimodal biometrics to secure mobile devices such as cell phones and tablets. An implementation for the Android OS of such a multimodal biometric system is presented along with results and a conclusion. Please find the article at this link, if you wish to read more.
