Researchers are developing a new security approach that relies on implicit, repetitive learning.

Researchers are developing a security approach that relies on implicit learning to train people to enter a unique pattern, which they can perform over time but can’t consciously remember. Developed by independent nonprofit research institute SRI International, Stanford and Northwestern, it is known as “rubber-hose resistant authentication.”

Implicit learning occurs through repetition but can’t be verbally explained, which prevents passwords from being compromised. MIT Technology Review reports that the project has used a game interface, resembling Guitar Hero, which trains the user to enter a unique pattern.
