Experiments and Data Collection

This page provides some background on the experiments and data collection efforts we undertook in support of our work on Knowledge Based Authentication page.

Initial experiments into user-chosen challenge questions

The following two pilot experiments were full pen-and-paper experiments that introduced our experiment methodology in which experiment participants self-assess the usability of the questions and answers. The results and analysis of these experiments contributed to our Trust 2009 presentation and our Policy & Internet publication.

Full experiment into user-chosen challenge questions

The following experiment was a hybrid (online and pen-and-paper) experiment based upon our earlier methodology. The results and analysis of this experiment contributed to our SOUPS 2009 publication.

What's in a name? data collection

In support of our Financial Cryptography 2010 publication, we undertook research regarding the real life distributions of names for people, pets and places.

Current experiments

We are current undertaking several additional experiments to support our ongoing research work.
