"Ephemeral Biometrics: What are they and what do they solve?" by Sung

I'm not really sure what's ephemeral about redefining authentication
to mean continuous monitoring.

This work directly targets insider threat concerns raised
post-Snowden, and provides further evidence that entities obsessed
with secrecy will destroy their own effectiveness in pursuit of an
improbable if not impossible definition of "security" which attempts
to hermetically seal systems that include human beings.

Good luck with that!
