Behavioural Biometrics for Multi-Factor Authentication in Biomedicine

Author(s): Anna Schlenker, Milan Šárek

Objectives: The goal of this work is to suggest an improved authentication method for biomedicine based on analysis of currently used behavioural biometric methods.

Methods: A brief definition of identification, authentication and biometric characteristics is provided. The main part of the work focuses on keystroke dynamics, its advantages, disadvantages and applications in biomedicine. Keystroke dynamics is then proposed as an interesting behavioural biometric characteristic for use in computer security not being widely used so far.

Results: The result of the work will be a new set of methods, which allows optimal multi-factor authentication method regarding its comfort, cost and reliability.

Conclusions: The purpose of this paper is to focus on the available information about keystroke dynamics.
