In this letter, we investigate the permanence issue of electroencephalographic (EEG) signals, elicited by visual stimuli, for biometric recognition purposes. Specifically, we evaluate the discriminative capabilities of generic visually-evoked potentials (VEPs) and of visual event-related potentials (ERPs) associated to specific cognitive tasks. Furthermore, we analyze the permanence issue of the considered EEG traits by verifying the stability across time of the achievable recognition rates. Experimental tests performed on a longitudinal database, comprising EEG data taken from 50 subjects during 3 different sessions, give evidence of the presence of repeatable discriminative characteristics in the individuals' EEG activity.

Abstract

In this letter, we investigate the permanence issue of electroencephalographic (EEG) signals, elicited by visual stimuli, for biometric recognition purposes. Specifically, we evaluate the discriminative capabilities of generic visually-evoked potentials (VEPs) and of visual event-related potentials (ERPs) associated to specific cognitive tasks. Furthermore, we analyze the permanence issue of the considered EEG traits by verifying the stability across time of the achievable recognition rates. Experimental tests performed on a longitudinal database, comprising EEG data taken from 50 subjects during 3 different sessions, give evidence of the presence of repeatable discriminative characteristics in the individuals' EEG activity.
