Abstract Currently, there are no secure access control methods of controlling restricted material access on a mobile device using context-based authentication methods. Simple challenge/response protocols do not provide the security required for some restricted information. A lost/misplaced device or compromised password can easily lead to the compromise of any restricted information to which the device may have access. Due to the inherent portability of a mobile device, a broader, more comprehensive set of access controls is required. This thesis will research and build a prototype application that will allow access to restricted information, stored on the device itself, based on a set of predefined contexts using the device's own hardware.
