This paper presents a comprehensive investigation
of authentication schemes for smart mobile devices.
We start by providing an overview of existing survey articles
published in the recent years that deal with security
for mobile devices. Then, we give a classification of threat
models in smart mobile devices in five categories, including,
identity-based attacks, eavesdropping-based attacks, combined
eavesdropping and identity-based attacks, manipulationbased
attacks, and service-based attacks. This is followed
by a description of multiple existing threat models. We also
provide a classification of countermeasures into four types
of categories, including, cryptographic functions, personal
identification, classification algorithms, and channel characteristics.
According to the characteristics of the countermeasure
along with the authentication model iteself, we categorize
the authentication schemes for smart mobile devices
in four categories, namely, 1) biometric-based authentication
schemes, 2) channel-based authentication schemes, 3)
factors-based authentication schemes, and 4) ID-based authentication
schemes. In addition, we provide a taxonomy
and comparison of authentication schemes for smart mobile
devices in form of tables. Finally, we identify open challenges
and future research directions.
