Two Factor Authentication for Augmented Reality Devices

Disclosed is a method for two factor authentication for augmented reality devices.

Currently, next generation wearable hardware technologies and augmented reality devices have few functions for determining who is actually issuing input to the device. The trouble with this is that the wearable device could easily respond to commands issued by another person. It is even feasible that these commands issued could have malicious intent. Currently all authentication on such devices is based on either some physical unlock (phone slide or pattern based unlock), or based on voice recognition technologies. The trouble with physical unlock is that it requires some sort of physical way to unlock the device - limiting wearability. The trouble with voice recognition is that it is unreliable, does not function in high noise environments, and can often mistake one user for another.

Disclosed are several possible methods for offering two factor authentication for issuing commands to wearable computer devices.

Use voice vibration to determine if a user is issuing a particular set of commands. Take voice input and match it against recorded vibrations to determine if voice input matches what the user has spoken.

Match pass phrase input against subsequent device vibration to unlock input.

Two example embodiments are disclosed.

The user enters a predefined unlock pass phrase that allows them to begin inputting to th...
