Eye movements may be used as a new biometric identification method

A new biometric security technology that uses ocular movements is being developed by a group of expert technologists in Finland.

The team has published a paper in the International Journal of Biometrics explaining how saccades (small, quick involuntary ocular movements) may be measured with a video camera. According to the Finnish technicians group, the pattern of saccadic movements is as unique as fingerprints or the iris, but easier to record, thus providing for an alternative biometric identification technology.

The Finnish group has studied ocular otoneurological movements for several years and came to the conclusion that some statistical values -which can be extracted from the data for these saccades- are unique for each and every one of us.
