Speaker Verification Systems and Security Considerations

David A. van Leeuwen

TNO Human Factors, The Netherlands

In speaker verification technology, the security considerations are quite different from performance measures that are usually studied. The security level of a system is generally expressed in the amount of effort it takes to have a successful break-in attempt. This paper discusses potential weaknesses of speaker verification systems and methods of exploiting these weaknesses, and suggests proper experiments for determining the security level of a speaker verification system.
