Over the last few years, Biometric technology has been gaining steam as a possible solution to the inconvenience that represents having passwords for each service we receive online. One of the latest developments is based on eye movement.
A research group from Texas State University is developing and studying the usability of a new biometric authentication technique that identifies people based on single properties of eye movement. Eyes have unique physical characteristics and move in a unique way.
This new biometric solution will use eye tracking to detect and verify single user’s pattern to allow logging into computer systems.
