The core idea of this invention, which is also the point of novelty, is the idea of residual checking. That is, given an existing series of failed authentication attempts, the idea is to compute a residual authentication challenge to present to the user. This is orthogonal and complementary to both biometrics and multi-factor authentication, but not in overlap with neither.
