TPEB CR became member of the consortium of the University of Žilina (UNIZA) and partner of the new Horizon2020 Project: BehavVer – Behavioural Patterns Verification for Prevention of Physical Penetration using Identity Theft
The primary goal of the project is to develop BehavVer software (the name is the abbreviation for Behavioural Patterns Verification) to prevent identity theft based on video surveillance of physical behavioural patterns (i.e. how the person usually behaves), especially when other identity control mechanisms are outmanoeuvred by the attacker or not applicable. The project will propose a novel technology that can be used to check physical identity of authorized persons based on behavioural patterns that we all have as employees, such as – how do we park a car in the parking lot – how do we show our badge or – which door we normally use etc. In case of a stolen identity of an authorized person in the strategic object, we could recognize that those usual patterns changed and notify the guard, in real time. Based on big data analysis of video surveillance of daily behavioural patterns of authorized persons, BehavVer project will develop novel technologies that are very difficult to dupe, even more in combination with other identity checks. The technology is cheap and easy to implement in the strategic objects, as it uses already existing infrastructure of CCTV cameras that are mandatorily installed in the crowded places, but so far ineffectively used.
