Thanks to their ability to monitor physical activity and health-related parameters, wearable devices are becoming nowadays more and more popular. In addition to what they already offer, an interesting capability achievable through such devices is biometric recognition. The physiological traits recorded by wearable devices may in fact possess distinctive properties which could allow to recognize their legitimate users, and detect unauthorized usage. In this talk, we will discuss the most recent advances accomplished in this field, and analyze the current state of the art, as well as the related open issues. Systems relying on traits such as photoplethysmogram (PPG), electrodermal activity (EDA), and seismocardiogram (SCG) will be detailed as illustrative examples.
