Abstract: While mobile handheld devices provide productivity benefits, they also pose new risks. User authentication is the best safeguard against the risk of unauthorized use and access to a device’s contents. This paper describes two location-based user authentication mechanisms designed to take advantage of Bluetooth functionality built into many current handheld devices.
