ZIPA Aims and Objectives

There has been a great deal of academic research activity around ZIA in the last several years with a vibrant and growing community working on the topic. Researchers have introduced many new systems for continuous and zero-involvement authentication and pairing. To make these systems practical, we need an in-depth exploration usability, reliability, speed, security, etc. The ZIPA workshop is a forum for researchers to identify interesting and promising research topics and to help the community a sounding board to discuss their new ideas and directions.
