Abstract

This paper explores the methodologies that have been implemented in behavioral biometrics when used for the purpose of authentication. With focus on keystroke dynamics and pressure as major factors while inputting password we detail a comprehensive study on the research so far. We also propose a new method which makes use of the accelerometer sensor present in most of the mobile devices along with touch pressure applied by a user to establish an authentication mechanism. Two models that effect the key parameters in establishing a behavior biometric are proposed and compared with respect to the results they produced when tested on a prototype we developed.
