1. A head-worn computer, comprising:
a camera adapted to capture a reflected image of an eye of a person wearing the head-worn computer, wherein the head-worn computer comprises a see-through display adapted to display digitally presented content simultaneously with a view of the surrounding environment, wherein the camera is positioned to capture the reflected images of the eye through a common optical axis with the digitally presented content and the surrounding environment in-line with the eye of the user; and
a processor adapted to identify the person as a known user from the reflected image of the eye, wherein the processor is further adapted to transmit data verifying the person as a known user to a second computing facility as a verification step in a secure file transfer procedure prior to wirelessly sharing a data file between the head-worn computer and the second computing facility.
