Your Brain Is Your Password

When it comes to high tech passwords, there are fingerprint scanners for computers, facial recognition programs for closed-circuit cameras and retinal scans are a mainstay of the movies.

Now some are investigating going beyond those technologies, to using brain scans and heartbeats to identify people in ways that can’t be faked.

"There will come a time when a lot of current input devices won’t be necessary," said Ken Revette, a professor of computer science at the British University in Egypt. Revette recently founded the Journal of Cognitive Biometrics to feature research in the developing field of high tech identification systems.

If people are going to have “Minority Report” computers then something beyond a keyboard for a password will be needed.
