Trust and Artificial Intelligence

March 2, 2021
Brian Stanton, Theodore Jensen
The artificial intelligence (AI) revolution is upon us, with the promise of advances such as driverless cars, smart buildings, automated health diagnostics and improved security monitoring. Many current efforts are aimed to measure system trustworthiness

Analysis, Comparison, and Assessment of Latent Fingerprint Preprocessing

July 21, 2017
Haiying Guan, Paul Y. Lee, Curtis L. Lamp, Andrew Dienstfrey, Mary Theofanos, Brian Stanton, Matthew Schwarz
Latent fingerprints obtained from crime scenes are rarely immediately suitable for identification purposes. Instead, most latent fingerprint images must be preprocessed to enhance the fingerprint information held within the digital image, while suppressing

Usability Testing of a Contactless Fingerprint Device: Part 1

December 7, 2016
Brian C. Stanton, Mary F. Theofanos, Susanne M. Furman, John M. Libert, Shahram Orandi, John D. Grantham
The use of biometrics to identify individuals has become an important component of efforts to ensure U.S. national security, and has also grown rapidly. Biometrics are, for example, an integral part of the United States Visitor and Immigrant Status

Security Fatigue

October 1, 2016
Brian C. Stanton, Sandra S. Prettyman, Mary F. Theofanos, Susanne M. Furman

Framework for Cloud Usability

August 2, 2015
Brian C. Stanton, Mary F. Theofanos, Karun P. Joshi
Organizations are increasingly adopting cloud-based services to meet their business needs. However, due to the complexity and diversity of cloud systems it is important to evaluate the user experience using within a framework that encompasses the

Privacy and Security in the Brave New World: The Use of Multiple Mental Models

July 21, 2015
Susanne M. Furman, Mary F. Theofanos, Brian C. Stanton, Sandra S. Prettyman
We live in a world where the flow of electronic information and communication has become a ubiquitous part of our everyday life. While our lives are enhanced in many ways, we also experience a myriad of challenges especially to our priva-cy and security

A Measurement Metric for Forensic Latent Fingerprint Preprocessing

August 1, 2014
Haiying Guan, Andrew Dienstfrey, Mary Theofanos, Brian Stanton
Although fingerprint mark-up and identification are well-studied fields, forensic fingerprint image preprocessing is still a relatively new domain in need of further scientific study and development of guidance of best practice. Latent fingerprint image

Character Strings, Memory and Passwords: What a Recall Study Can Tell Us.

June 22, 2014
Brian C. Stanton, Kristen Greene
Many users must authenticate to multiple systems and applications, often using different passwords, on a daily basis. At the same time, the recommendations of security experts are driving increases in the required character length and complexity of

I Can't Type That! P@$$w0rd Entry on Mobile Devices

June 22, 2014
Kristen Greene, Melissa A. Gallagher, Brian C. Stanton, Paul Y. Lee
Given the numerous constraints of onscreen keyboards, such as smaller keys and lack of tactile feedback, remembering and typing long, complex passwords — an already burdensome task on desktop computing systems —becomes nearly unbearable on small mobile

A New Metric for Latent Fingerprint Image Preprocessing

June 24, 2013
Mary Theofanos, Andrew Dienstfrey, Brian Stanton, Haiying Guan
Although fingerprint recognition is a well-studied area, forensic fingerprint preprocessing based on computational theory is still a relatively new domain in need of further scientific study and development of standards of best practice. Latent fingerprint

Camera Recognition

March 26, 2013
Michelle P. Steves, Brian C. Stanton, Mary F. Theofanos, Dana E. Chisnell, Hannah Wald
The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) program is a biometrically-enhanced identification system primarily situated at border points of entry such as airports and seaports. In

Basing Cybersecurity Training on User Perceptions

April 2, 2012
Susanne M. Furman, Mary F. Theofanos, Yee-Yin Choong, Brian C. Stanton
The National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) will be conducting a nationwide awareness and outreach program to effect behavioral change. To be effective, an educational campaign must first understand users’ perceptions of computer and online

Real-time Feedback for Usable Fingerprint Systems

October 11, 2011
Mary F. Theofanos, Brian C. Stanton, Yee-Yin Choong, Haiying Guan
Compared with traditional password and other identification methods, biometrics like face, iris, and fingerprint for automatic personal identification/verification have many advantages, and are increasingly gaining popularity in all kinds of applications


July 11, 2011
Mary F. Theofanos, Brian C. Stanton
In 2005 the International Standards Organization published ISO/IEC 25062 “Common Industry Format (CIF) for Usability Test Reports”. This standard focused on documenting the results of usability testing in a consistent format in terms of user effectiveness
