Protecting Our Thoughts

The study of electro activity in the human brain has been around for over a century but in recent years it has become more relevant for the control of everyday applications. Brain-computer interfacing (BCI) has been a serious study for at least the last 30 years and this has led to a variety of lightweight devices that may be applied for improved human control over automata.

Our research interest has been to take several brainware devices and to test them for security vulnerabilities. We have also assessed the devices for forensic capabilities. The results show that the communication between the headset and the computer interface or the device has vulnerabilities that disclose information regarding the intended control function and the brain to device mapping.

Bryce Coad, Kaushik Sundararajan and Brian Cusack explore brain-ware vulnerabilities to hacking.
