In recent years, EEG based biometric systems have received great interest from researchers. With ever increasing cases of various types of spoof attacks, and due to vulnerabilities present in the existing systems different biometric modalities have been explored and EEG is one of them. EEG based biometric systems are resilient against cases of forgery and theft as these systems do not work under stress and coerced conditions of users. Due to these favorable characteristics, EEG has been studied as a potential “biomarker” for behavioral analysis of a user. Despite all these favorable features, EEG systems face challenges in the development of on-the-go biometric systems which are needed to be resolved. This paper aims to present recent trends of EEG based biometric systems and discusses major issues faced in the development of these systems.
