Cognitive biometrics refers to a novel approach for user authentication/identification utilising biosignals which reflect the mental and emotional states of an individual. Specifically, current implementations rely on the use of the electroencephalogram (EEG), electrocardiogram (ECG), and the electro dermal response (EDR) as inputs into a traditional authentication scheme. The motivation for the deployment of biosignals resides in their potential uniqueness, universality, and their resistance… CONTINUE READING
