*** FREE ONLINE WEBINAR on Continuous Authentication ***

The IEEE Biometrics Council invites participants to the upcoming (free) 
webinar by Prof. Terence Sim on "Continuous Authentication – Still a 
Thing after 20 years?". Detail on the webinar are given below:

Title: Continuous Authentication – Still a Thing after 20 years?
Speaker: Assoc. Prof. Terence Sim, National University of Singapore
When: January 17, 2024 at 11 am Beijing Time (8:30 am IST, 7 pm PST and 
10 pm ET on 16 Jan 2024)
Where: Online (Zoom)
Registration: (free, but required): 

*** Talk Summary ***
In this webinar, the speaker will explore the concept of Continuous 
Authentication (CA), a security measure where a computer system 
continuously verifies the identity of the user during a session. This 
approach is contrasted with One-Time Authentication (OTA), which only 
verifies identity at the session’s start. Although CA was first proposed 
in 2000, it has gained significant attention recently due to the 
widespread use of smartphones and IoT devices. The webinar will cover 
the evolution and progress of CA over the past twenty years, addressing 
the key challenges it faces and suggesting potential areas for future 
research. CA is intended to enhance, not replace, OTA methods.
