About this event

The digital revolution has transformed the way we create, destroy, share, process and manage information. However, such technology has also increased the opportunities for fraud and other related crimes to be committed. Therefore, as the adoption of such technologies expands, it becomes vital to ensure the integrity and authenticity of electronic digital systems and to manage, control access to and verify their identity if fraud based on mimicking their identity is to be prevented. This talk will investigate practical issues related to the determination of device identity based on their physical and operating characteristics. Such a technology presents significant challenges in generating a robust and flexible system capable of allowing online transactions to be performed with a high degree of integrity..
