    This paper is targeted in the area of biometric data enabled security by using machine learning for the digital health. The traditional authentication systems are vulnerable to the risks of forgetfulness, loss, and theft. Biometric authentication is has been improved and become the part of daily life. The Electrocardiogram (ECG) based authentication method has been introduced as a biometric security system suitable to check the identification for entering a building and this research provides for studying ECG-based biometric authentication techniques to reshape input data by slicing based on the RR-interval. The Overall Performance (OP) as a newly proposed performance measure is the combined performance metric of multiple authentication measures in this study. The performance of the proposed system using a confusion matrix has been evaluated and it has achieved up to 95% accuracy by compact data analysis. The Amang ECG (amgecg) toolbox in MATLAB is applied to the mean square error (MSE) based upper-range control limit (UCL) which directly affects three authentication performance metrics: the number of accepted samples, the accuracy and the OP. Based on this approach, it is found that the OP could be maximized by applying a UCL of 0.0028, which indicates 61 accepted samples within 70 samples and ensures that the proposed authentication system achieves 95% accuracy.
