    • Biometric access control for digital media streams in home networks 

      Corcoran, Peter; Iancu, Claudia; Callaly, Frank; Cucos, Alexandru (IEEE, 2007)
      Methods for controlling access to digital media content in the home environment using biometric sensing techniques are described. A wireless rebroadcast system for IP-TV content was retrofitted with a combination of ...
    • Biometric technology and smartphones: a consideration of the practicalities of a broad adoption of biometrics and the likely impacts 

      Corcoran, Peter; Costache, Claudia (IEEE, 2016-04)
      The Widespread Global Adoption of Smartphones across all demographics and the rapid commoditization of the technology to the point at which an entry-level device can be sold profitably for less than US$100 suggest that we ...
    • Biometrics and Consumer Electronics: A Brave New World or the Road to Dystopia?[Soapbox] 

      Corcoran, Peter M. (IEEE, 2013-04)
      Biometric systems confirm a person's identity by extracting and comparing patterns in their physical characteristics against computer records of those patterns. Examples include scans of the face, iris, or retina; measurements ...
    • Determining Unique Fingerprint Features for Biometric Encoding of Data 

      Cucu, Catalin; Cucos, Alex; Corcoran, Peter (2008)
      A novel approach to determining unique fingerprint features with high repeatibility is described. The techniques described are particularly suitable for CE applications and devices employing inexpensive capacitative ...
    • Smartphones, biometrics, and a brave new world 

      Corcoran, Peter; Costache, Claudia (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016-09-09)
      In this article, we take a somewhat contrarian viewpoint - that biometrics may, in fact, offer solutions to many of today's cyber-security problems that appear with increasing frequency in prime-time news. This outcome ...
    • Unconstrained palmprint as a smartphone biometric 

      Ungureanu, Adrian-Stefan; Thavalengal, Shejin; Cognard, Timothée E.; Costache, Claudia; Corcoran, Peter (IEEE, 2017-11-13)
      In this work the use of palmprints as an alternative biometric for smartphones is investigated and its feasibility is evaluated across multiple devices using unconstrained acquisition. A novel multi-device database that ...
