Soon, typing style to become `digital fingerprint`
Melbourne: Typing styles are as unique as fingerprints and could soon be used to verify the identity of computer users, according to a new study.
The Queensland University of Technology`s Eesa Al Solami has developed an algorithmic system to analyse typists` keystroke dynamics, the Daily Telegraph reported.
The unique striking pattern will allow computers to lock down sensitive information in the case of an unauthorized user.
Even though the system is in its early stages, Solami doesn`t believe it will render internet username and password useless.
"You need a username and password but a username and password cannot protect your computer (once you`re logged in),” he said.
"My actual approach is to extract the behaviour of users and see if we can distinguish different users during one session," he added.
The researcher claimed that the system would be valuable to industries that collect large volumes of personal information such as banks and the armed forces and it could be extended to mobile phones and tablets.
