Abstract Mobile device has successfully replaced traditional telephone to become the most popular wireless communication tools. Mobile devices provide various services fulfill almost all the user requirements as an effective communication and information delivering services. So there is a demand to communicate or exchange confidential information in a secure environment. In this paper, we introduce a security enhancement based multifactor authentication for secure mobile transaction that compromises cost, simplicity, security and performance of transaction. This proposal presents a biometrics authentication system as face recognition technology, a Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) such as an X.509 certificate both are used in the mobile device which help the mobile transaction.
