Thoughts to Replace Passwords

A group of researchers at Carleton University in Ottawa hope to soon be able to use brain wares as a replacement for passwords. The research aims to replace traditional security tools such as key cards and pin numbers with brainwave biometric authentication device.

Julie Thorpe, a researcher at the University, says that users would simply think their password. The idea is that like fingerprints, brainwave signals vary slightly from person to person, even when they think alike. IT Observer | Thoughts to Replace Passwords
