dc.description.abstract In the recent years, we have witnessed a tremendous growth and development in the field of wireless communication technology and sensors. Resulting into opening new dimensions in various research fields. The integration of Nano scale devices with low power consumption circuits brought a new evolution in wireless networks. This blend of technologies led to the formation of a new field in WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks) known as WBAN (Wireless Body Area Network). WBAN is based on small sensors designed to operate and function mainly on the human body. As we are dealing with human lives, security and privacy are major concerns as patients’ data is at the stakes. Authentication is an important factor in securing information from unauthorized usage. Now-a-days a lot of research has been done in order to improve the overall authentication mechanisms in WBAN. In this poster, we are surveying the security challenges in WBAN with a focus on the authentication phase. A list of several methods along with their schemes has been studied and recapitulated. ECG is one the most popular schemes used in WBAN, benefiting from its uniqueness. However, it comes with challenges as creating an extract trait could get complicated. ECG could be aided by the help of combining fingerprint which will result in a non-destructive method of biometric authentication compared with single ECG trait. en_US
