Implementation of ATM Security by Using Fingerprint recognition and GSM




Abstract - The main objective of this system is to develop an embedded system, which is used for ATM security applications. In these systems, Bankers will collect the customer finger prints and mobile number while opening the accounts then customer only access ATM machine. The working of these ATM machine is when customer place finger on the finger print module when it access automatically generates every time different 4-digit code as a message to the mobile of the authorized customer through
GSM modem connected to the microcontroller. The code received by the customer should be entered by pressing the keys on the touch screen. After entering it checks whether it is a valid one or not and allows the customer further access.
Keywords - ATM terminal; ARM9; fingerprint recognition; image enhancement; GSM MODEM.

Now-a-days, in the self-service banking system has got extensive popularization with the characteristic offering high-quality 24 hours service for customer.

Atm Protocol

...The ATM reference model, which has two forms - one for the user-to-network interface (UNI) and the other for the network-to-node interface (NNI), is divided into three layers: the ATM adaptation layer (AAL), the ATM layer, and the physical layer. The AAL interfaces the higher layer protocols to the ATM Layer, which relays ATM cells both from the upper layers to the ATM Layer and vice versa. When relaying information received from the higher layers, the AAL segments the data into ATM cells. When relaying information received from the ATM Layer, the AAL must reassemble the payloads into a format the higher layers can understand. This is called Segmentation and Reassembly (SAR). Different AALs are defined in supporting different types of traffic or service expected to be used on ATM networks. The ATM layer is responsible for relaying cells from the AAL to the physical layer for transmission and from the physical layer to the AAL for use at the end systems, it determines where the incoming cells should be forwarded to, resets the corresponding connection identifiers and forwards the cells to the next link, as well as buffers cells, and handles various traffic management functions such as cell loss priority marking, congestion indication, and generic flow control access. It also monitors the transmission rate and conformance to the service contract (traffic policing). The physical layer of ATM defines the bit timing and other characteristics for encoding and decoding the data......

Genetic Enhancement

...Giving the Worse-off a Voice in the Debate about Genetic Enhancement Technology Unlike a few years ago, when conceiving a baby girl or a baby boy was a matter of chance, today's prospective parents can choose to alter the genetic make-up of their children in order to enhance their offspring's well-being in the future. Recent advances in the field of genetics can now help people to become parents, and even allow them to choosing the sex of their baby. In March 2009, the BBC reported that a couple in California, Kristen and Matt Landon, have used genetic testing techniques to select the sex of their daughter at a fertility clinic in Los Angeles. As researchers learn new ways to manipulate genes, they plan to take things a step further by offering what some are calling "designer babies". The term “designer babies” refers to a baby whose genetic makeup has been artificially selected by genetic engineering combined with in vitro fertilization (the joining of a woman's egg and a man's sperm in a laboratory) to ensure the presence or absence of particular genes or characteristics. Dr. Jeffrey Steinberg, a pioneer in in-vitro fertilization and director of Los Angeles Fertility Institute, said that he “would predict that by next year, we will have determined sex with 100 percent certainty on a baby, and we will have determined eye color with about an 80 percent accuracy rate." The prospect of “designer babies”, like many of the ethical challenges posed by the advancements in......

...“Self-enhancement” is a type of motivation that works to make individuals feel good about themselves and to maintain self-esteem. Accordingly such motivation becomes especially noticeable in situations when an individual is threatened, when faced with failure or when one's self-esteem is tarnished. Social behaviorist observes that self-enhancement involves a preference for positive over negative self-views. It is one of the four self-evaluation motives:, along with self-assessment (the drive for an accurate self-concept), self-verification (the drive for a self-concept congruent with one's identity) and self-improvement (the act of bettering one's self-concept). Further self-enhancement motives drive the process of self-regulation that leads individuals to control and direct their own actions. Accordingly, there are a variety of strategies that individuals can use to enhance their sense of personal worth. By way of example, an individual can moderately show skills that they lack so others may look to seem better by comparison. The individual then tends to think of themselves as having more positive qualities and fewer negative qualities than others. Thus, individuals who already have high esteem enhance their self-concept directly, by processing new information in a biased way. Individuals with low self-esteem, however, use more indirect strategies, for example by avoiding situations in which their negative qualities will be seen. In both cases, the true circumstances or......

Atm Fraud

...ATM Fraud ATM fraud is common amongst all Americans. It happens to innocent people day in and day out. Anyone is at risk whether your card is stolen or not. Card trapping and card skimming are two types of ATM fraud. There are also ways to prevent it as well. Card trapping is one form of ATM fraudulence. Criminals manipulate ATM machines so that any card that is inserted gets stuck or trapped. The scammer then pretends to offer help to the victim and asks them to reenter their PIN. Once the card holder then decides to leave the thief removes the card, goes to another bank, and begins to take money out of the account. The criminal also can put a legitimate not on the machine stating that if the transaction doesn’t work the first time try it a couple more times. As the victim does this, the criminal is watching over them to remember the pin. This is called “shoulder surfing”. Card Skimming is another type of fraud. It occurs without the victim having their credit/debit cards stolen. Criminals use a device designed to look like part of a machine where the person swipes their card into cash machines and is able to copy the details from a card and can see the PIN. Thieves use the stored information to make fraudulent charges online or with fake credit cards As an informed consumer of credit to prevent being ripped off by ATM fraud you should not leave an ATM machine unattended if you card is stuck inside a machine.

Atm Case Study

...ATM Case study ATMs have become much more than cash withdrawal machines. The most sophisticated units are now full-service banking channels, offering enormous potential for enhanced service delivery. They are also a much under-used marketing channel. As revenues from interchange and transaction fees decline in many markets, ATM advertising is opening up a potential new revenue stream .ATMs still represent the largest investment by banks in self-service financial distribution so there is an obvious need to generate as a high a return from this investment as possible. At the same time, many Independent ATM Deployers (IADs) face additional cost challenges as a result of high site rentals and a lack of high-profit locations in some markets. Banks are likely to make the most of the time you spend in front of their ATMs. They may use the ATM screens for advertising. The Finance Ministry has issued a notification allowing them to advertise either their own products and services or those of broking firms, mutual funds, insurance companies and pension funds on the ATM screen. Going by the notification, banks can squeeze in an advertisement during the seconds (after keying in the amount to be withdrawn, the machine takes a few seconds — 10-20 seconds — to process the request) you wait before the ATM to withdraw cash. “Banks may soon begin charging customers for ATM usage”- The Hindu Business line. This really puts a big question mark on the usage of ATM by Indian customers. India...

New Atm

...Summary The paper was written highlighting the ATM installation scenario in INDIA. The problems that had to be faced is mostly the acceptance of the new technology in the general population. The multilingual and the illiteracy thought of to be the barrier in the installation. Hofstede’s cultural dimensions such as power distance, individualism versus collectivism, and long-term short-term orientation affect ATM installation and usage in the market. Its benefits has also been studied. Irrespective of being illiterate, the regular users are mostly illiterate people. They could even perform complex functions like depositing cash. ATM has brought the population to the comfort zone from the very hectic procedure of transaction which they usually had to deal with in standing in the queue in the bank. Even the adoption of ENGLISH language by the users in their interface was seen an enormous times than what was expected. This research has also revealed that once the people get the first experience of the technology of the ATM, then there’s no worry about keeping the literacy and the prior knowledge to be a barrier issue in their installation. Although it has been realized that in reducing the psychological gap between the ATMs and the large population of the India would be a tougher task. Work has to be devoted in modifying this association and increasing potential users’ confidence in using the ATM. The contextual inquiry has also brought this fact that due to the......

The Resistance Toward Atms

...Toward ATMs It is widely believed that the Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) is a fusion of several different technological inventions throughout the early 1960s. Originating from Luther Simjian’s Bankograph, the ATM is intended to allow its users to complete basic transactions without the assistance of a bank teller (Automated Teller Machines, 2010). Today, many people actually resist the use of ATMs because of the cyber and physical risks associated with their use. This technology is widely opposed due to shortcomings on security, the increased cost of usage, and a non-existent human interface. Though the ATM was meant to provide and ensure users banking satisfaction, these limitations, through error and lack of immediate transparency, prevent the simplicity and efficiency that the machine was intended to provide. First and foremost, ATMs are a threat to the security of both the financial institutions and their account holders. There are three key vulnerabilities presented when using an ATM. There is a threat to physical security, a threat to virtual security, and the threat of fraud. Physical security is at stake given that a machine is somehow broken in to. If you take 5 minutes to scour the Internet, you will find a plethora of reports from various cities where ATMs were physically broken in to and robbed. In 2014 alone, over 619 explosive attacks in Europe, where the early ATM originated, resulted in their physical robbery (Bonessi, 2015). By physically robbing an ATM,......

Self­ Enhancement

...overall job satisfaction. 5)An important aspect of self­ concept is the idea that almost everyone engages in self­ enhancement. What problems tend to occur in organizations as a result of this self­ enhancement phenomenon? What can organizational leaders do to make use of a person’s inherent drive for self­ enhancement? Self­ enhancement is a type of motivation that works to make people feel good about themselves and to maintain self-esteem. It involves a preference for positive over negative self-views. Individuals tend to rate themselves above average, selectively recall positive feedback while forgetting negative feedback, attribute their success to personal motivation or ability while blaming the situation for their mistakes, and believe that they have a better than average probability of success. People don't see themselves are above average in all circumstances, but this bias is apparent for condition that are common rather than rare and that are important to them. Self­ enhancement has positive and negative consequences in organizational setting. On the positive side, researches had found that individuals have better personal adjustment and experience better mental and physical health when they view their self- concept in a positive light. On the negative side, self- enhancement can result in bad decision. For example, studies report that self- enhancement causes managers to overestimate the probability of success in investment decisions. Moreover, as they......

Use Case for Atm Services

...CIS 210 - Use Case for ATM Services 4/29/12 Kevin Hagan Dr. Yohannes Abate Making a withdrawal via an Automated Teller Machine Making a withdrawal of funds from your bank account via an automated teller machine (ATM) is easy (Richardson). There are only a few steps involved, and there is no need for the customer to have to go to the bank itself anymore. While there are no restrictions, you can make withdrawals from any ATM on the street, the only exception over using the bank’s ATM is that they may charge you a fee for using another banks/companies ATM. For illustration, we will be using an ATM at the bank itself, so that if there is a problem then the customer can go inside and discuss this problem with a representative of the bank. The assumption is that you are at the ATM and currently have an account with the bank. Step 1: Insert your ATM card or credit card. Step 2: Enter your personal identification number (PIN). Step 3: Select “Withdrawal” from the transaction menu. Step 4: Select “cash” from the next transaction menu. Step 5: Select the amount of cash you wish to withdraw. At this step, either you can withdraw a preselected amount, or you can enter any other amount. Step 6: When prompted, select confirm on the amount that you wish to withdraw. Step 6: Take your detailed receipt with a summary of your withdrawals. Step 7: Remove your ATM card from the machine. The alternate of using the ATM is to go inside the bank, wait for the next teller,......

Male Enhancements

...Male Enhancements We see advertisements everyday on television, in magazines and even email inboxes for pills ointments, supplements, and contraptions aimed at enhancing penis size, sexual stamina, or libido. It's a testimony to men who have insecurities about their sexual performance. The question is, do any of these "male enhancement" techniques really work and if they do, what are the side effects? Jimmy Johnson the NFL coach is the spoke person for Extenze. They claim that Extenze is the number one leader of male enhancement tablets. They guarantee maximum performance every day. The product website (4ExtenZe. net) guarantees that men will notice penile enlargement and experience harder, more frequent erections that last longer, with more intense orgasms. Extenze is not FDA-approved and there is no scientific evidence that this pill can increase penis size (Spinelli, 2009). Spinelli, a medical doctor, tested the product with her partner, who is also a doctor. After a month long trial, they noticed no change in the male’s sexual response and no increase in length. This is just one example of many other consumers who say they see don’t see any difference in their sexual response. Extenze claims penile enlargement yet it receives so many negative reviews of how it doesn’t work. Another male enhancement pill that is usually advertised is SinRex. SinRex is proven to give bigger, longer and harder erections with more explosive orgasms. It also increases sexual stamina.......
