Abstract / Description

This paper details the research into using audio signal processing methods to provide authentication and identification services for the purpose of enhancing cyber security in voice applications. Audio is a growing domain for cyber security technology. It is envisaged that over the next decade, the primary interface for issuing commands to consumer internet-enabled devices will be voice. Increasingly, devices such as desktop computers, smart speakers, cars, TV’s, phones an Internet of Things (IOT) devices all have built in voice assistants and voice activated features. This research outlines an approach to securely identify and authenticate users of audio and voice operated systems that utilises existing cryptography methods and audio steganography in a method comparable to a PKI for sound, whilst retaining the usability associated with audio and voice driven systems.
