Unobtrusive Authentication Using ACTIvity Related and Soft BIOmetrics.

ACTIBIO aims to research and develop a completely new concept in biometric authentication, i.e., the extraction of biometric signatures based on the response of the user to specific stimuli while performing specific work-related activities. The novelty of the approach lies in the fact that the measurements that will be used for authentication will correspond to the response of the person to specific events being however, fully unobtrusive and also fully integrated in an Ambient Intelligence infrastructure.
