Making wearable smart devices “smarter” and more secure

nwelding   April 22, 2019

In fact, they have developed a generic implicit wearable device user authentication mechanism that uses combinations of three types of less-informative coarse-grained minute-level biometrics: behavioral (step counts), physiological (heart rate) and hybrid (calorie burn and metabolic equivalent of task), all of which can be easily obtained from most wearables.
