Edge computing can potentially play a crucial role in enabling user authentication and monitoring through context-aware biometrics in military/battlefield applications. For example, in Internet of Military Things (IoMT) or Internet of Battlefield Things (IoBT),an increasing number of ubiquitous sensing and computing devices worn by military personnel and embedded within military equipment (combat suit, instrumented helmets, weapon systems, etc.) are capable of acquiring a variety of static and dynamic biometrics (e.g., face, iris, periocular, fingerprints, heart-rate, gait, gestures, and facial expressions). Such devices may also be capable of collecting operational context data. These data collectively can be used to perform context-adaptive authentication in-the-wild and continuous monitoring of soldier's psychophysical condition in a dedicated edge computing architecture.
