Continuous authentication is viewed as a promising way of improving on today’s approach of only using credentials at the beginning of a session. As security expert Lenny Zeltser highlights, one way of implementing continuous authentication would be to use a mobile phone’s sensors to passively monitor a legitimate user’s unique bio-signs, such as keystrokes and fingerprints, and block access if an impostor is detected. Facial recognition using a phone’s camera is another method of achieving this goal, but as several…
