Over the past decade, security and privacy concerns about the growing deployment of biometrics as a proof of identity have motivated researchers to investigate solutions such as cancellable biometrics to enhance the security of biometric systems. However, the open nature of newly emerged mobile authentication scenarios has made these solutions impractical and necessitated the need for new innovative solutions. This paper proposes an effective authentication scheme for remote users on mobile-handsets. The proposal incorporates cancellable biometrics with actual mobile-handset location to produce a one-time authentication token.
