Thermal Vein Signatures, DNA and EEG Brainprint in Biometric User Authentication


In this paper we present a survey of three recent developments in biometric user authentication based on physical human characteristics that are less prone to natural or intentional changes than other currently used techniques: thermal vein signatures, DNA and EEG brainprint obtained by stimulating the brain with cognitive events. This paper argues that biometric user authentication using these three human characteristics is already an everyday a reality or is going to be very soon.
