Research background: In today’s globalised world, there is an increasing need for reliable verification of users’ identity accessing various types of information systems. This verification is realised through authentication, which is traditionally divided according to the kind of identification mark that is used: knowledge authentication (e.g., passwords, control questions), authentication through an authentication object (e.g., magnetic cards, smart cards) and biometric authentication (e.g., voice, face recognition). However, it should be noted that this identity may not only be the specific identity of the user but also, for example, his group affiliation or ability.
Purpose of the article: This paper aims to identify and describe the impact of globalisation on selected types of authentication.
Methods: As the representative of the current methods of authentication of persons are selected a password authentication and hand-based biometric authentication. The most often used methods of password attacks are simulated through mathematical modelling, and the results are compared concerning the timeline. Through modelling, multi characteristics authentication using the thermal characteristics of the hand will be presented.
Findings & Value added: Through mathematical modelling, the article demonstrates the influence of globalisation on the resilience of passwords to the most commonly used attacks and discusses the impact of globalisation on the requirements for modern forms of authentication.
Key words: global changes / security / authentication / passwords / hand-based biometric
