Continuous Authentication

« Back to Glossary Index

Continuous authentication extends the process of authentication throughout a user’s session by implementing continual monitoring. If a signal appears that a user may have changed, continuous authentication processes will introduce another authentication challenge, for instance a timeout that requires the user to sign in once more, to ensure the credibility of the user. Signals indicating a change in user may include changes related to language fingerprints mouse movement patterns, typing speed, and more.
