Japanese Scientists Have Developed a Security Tool by Breath Detection

December 26, 2022

Biometric authentication by using fingerprints, facial and voice recognition and even the eyes is in use as a security tool to identify people especially in public spaces like airports, work places, stations etc. Some Japanese scientists from Kyushu University intend to revolutionize breath authentication security tools by using breath detection method to identify people. What could be more fascinating than this? In the first phase of testing the accuracy data was ninety-seven percent, however testing still continues to make it hundred percent authentic and data proven. One of the scientists working in this project states that breath detection has far more potential advantages over other biometrics as a security tool.

The emergence of human scent being used as a security authentication process is an emerging trend, since there has been a shift to understand and recognize breath as vital sign or biomarker for various critical illnesses. Breath is being used as a preventive measure for early detection, recording and collecting everyday data of individuals. Skin releases gasses, which was initially used for detection but it has its limitations as certain things for authenticating data was not full-proof.
