There is a certain type of human memory that can be a unique identifier for computer users to authenticate themselves during the login process. This is not the same type of memory used to remember passwords. Recent research* describes this type of memory as the “kernel of self-awareness”. This kernel forms early in our lives, and then remains and evolves over a lifetime. This is an active type of memory, formed as a result of associative thinking and is rooted in multiple places in the brain. Such memories are dynamic, long-lasting, and entirely unique to each one of us. Today, these memories are being harnessed to make the life of legitimate computer users much easier and cyberattacks by computer  hackers much more difficult.
