Automatic Lock System for Computer using Bluetooth and Fingerprint Authentication
Windows Operating System (OS) do have their own authentication policies that provide security to the system. However, these policies do not entirely protect the system from unauthorized user. This is because text-based, password can be easily cracked or stolen by someone else using methods such as brute- force and shoulder surfing. Hence it does not guarantee the safety of the system. This project will focus on developing an automatic locking system for a computer using Bluetooth technology with the fingerprint authentication method. Bluetooth is an open standard specification for a radio frequency (RF) - based, short range wireless technology that is designed to be an inexpensive. Bluetooth technology is suitable for our project because its medium range of communication. To increase the security of our system, we enhance our project by adding fingerprint authentication method. By adding this method, the system only be able to unlock by someone that have registered fingerprint.
Submission of an original manuscript to the Journal of Computing Technologies and Creative Content (JTeC) will be taken to mean that it represents original work not previoussly published, that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication. All submitted articles that are published by JTeC cannot be published anywhere by the authors unless with the permission by JTeC Editors. JTeC reserves the right to the publications of the articles it published, and reserves the right to reuse the articles elsewhere for academic purposes, while still retaining the names of the original authors with the original articles.
JTeC takes the stance that the publication of scholarly research is meant to disseminate knowledge and in a not-for-profit regime, benefits neither publisher nor author financially. It sees itself as having obligation to its author and to society to make content available online now that the technology allows for such possibility.
