Abstract—With the advent of mobile technology and its novel applications, mobile based online payment method has become popular in the online business environment, increasing the market potential of the business. This has also led to do purchase by customers from anywhere, any time. The volume of mobile transactions has also demanded for a better security model in the system. The traditional internet based services gives authentication based security in text oriented format. Due to theft of mobile Devices or user identity, the third party person may access the resources. To ensure the security and protection from unauthorized user within distributed mobile system, we have proposed a new approach called mf-secure through single sign-on which provides user authentication by multi factors such as password, digital signature, RFID and biometrics which yields better authenticated service to the mobile clients. This approach is evaluated through simulation which shows enhanced security in distributed mobile system.
Index Terms—Authentication, biometrics, digital signature, transaction.
