Venue: Room EF619



The purpose of this study is twofold. First, this study presents an ingenious design and development of a door access control system that utilizes the always-in-hand smartphone. The proposed system is known as the Near Field Communication (NFC) Encrypted Steganography Graphical Password smartphone access control system. This system enables individuals to unlock door using a two-factor authentication system incorporating graphical password, steganography and cryptography techniques. Second, this study draws upon Technology Acceptance Model and Protection Motivation Theory to examine the users’ behavioral intention to use the proposed system. Our findings offer fresh insights for scholars, mobile device manufacturers and service providers in developing a unified door security system with NFC-enabled smartphone.
