What is Continuous Authentication?
Continuous authentication is a method of identity confirmation on an ongoing basis. Instead of a user simply being logged in once, the authentication mechanism continues to re-verify the identity of the session user even after logging in. In this method, the computer would send continuously search for the presence of the token's signal within the immediate proximity. If the token is no longer present, the computer will automatically lock.
Unlike normal authentication ("static authentication" or "one-time authentication"), which is going through a checkpoint once, continuous authentication is the checkpoint following everyone until they leave the secure area. Authenticating continuously has major advantages compared to authenticating once, especially since the system will lock itself as soon as a user is no longer present.
