Continuous authentication refers to a process of continually monitoring user sessions and evaluating the probability that a particular user is who they claim to be. The user is required to reverify identity to continue the session if the probability that a user may have changed is high. For example, continuous authentication can detect unusual shifts in a user’s behavior if a user's device is left unattended, and an imposter takes over the session. The goal of continuous authentication is to deliver intelligent, secure, and on-going identity verification without interrupting the workflow.
