"Backdoor" in computer security is synonymous with a "maintenance hook" - a second, hidden way into the software/system that may allow malicious entities to bypass security.

Behavioral authentication is based on a person's movement characteristics. Other types of authentication include something you know (passwords), something you have (security token), something you are (fingerprint biometrics). Behavioral authentication includes something you do. Examples include gaze-based authentication, signature-based authentication, and movement-based authentication.

A form of identification and access control based on a person's physical attribute. The most common physiological characteristic used for identification is the fingerprint. Biometric authentication falls under the authentication type of something you are. Types of biometric authentication include facial biometrics, vein scans, and fingerprint biometrics.

A “bot” in cybersecurity is a software application that performs automated, time-consuming tasks on command. Cyber criminals use these bot programs to infect computers and take control for malicious purposes. 

A brute-force attack is the process of utilizing the entire key space to perform an attack. This method involves trying every single possible combinations one after another. Brute-forcing can be successful in hacking accounts if the account was protected by an easily guessed password. An example of a weak password is 'password123'. An example of a strong password is 'o3jU8G6:3bn;d:30781cgSiHNUH4'.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is the practice of allowing employees to bring and use their own connected devices (computers, smartphones, etc.) for work purposes. BYOD brings new challenges for IT managers trying to keep access control tight.
