Science and science fiction have just collided and become scary reality according to research in the Computer Science Department at Texas Tech University.
While hackers are becoming more and more proficient at hacking into technological systems, some are looking at EEG (electroencephalograms) authentication as user passwords.
However, research is proving that while this method is highly effective in maintaining high security, brain waves show more than just a user’s identity. It also reveals non-authentication-centric information about the user.
In other words, it gives up medical, behavioral, and emotional information about the user as well.
