Activity-aware ECG-based patient authentication for healremote th monitoring. The paper presents novel multimodal biometric authentication system based on wearable human electrocardiogram (ECG) and accelerometer sensors (Shimmer). The article demonstrated, on data collected from 17 subjects, that activity-aware authentication systems can effectively deal with the ECG variability induced by physical activities performed in the real world. Based on this the author believes the approached outline in the paper could facilitate ongoing authentication without requiring frequent and active participation from the user.
