An increase in research of brain activity via means of Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) and Electroencephalogram (EEG) is creating additional opportunity for the study and research of biometric data. Systems that rely on authentication to grant access to sensitive information now use biometric information such as fingerprints and facial recognition to permit users into these systems. BCI's and EEG's introduce additional means of providing brain activity by measuring local electrical activity within the brain and skull, respectively. Both BCI and EEG can be used as such biometric data in order to prove two important points of truth in these systems, identification and authentication.
