Study reveals privacy threat from combining IoT devices and biometric information

A study explored the implications of identity leakage from various cyber-physical sources. The study analysed over 30 000 biometric samples from over 50 users, as well as over 100,000 Internet of things (IoT) device IDs. It revealed that identity leakages from different devices enable correlating between IoT device IDs and biometric information, to profile victims in both cyber and physical domains.
