Deployment of Keystroke Analysis on a Smartphone

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The current security on mobile devices is often limited to the Personal Identification Number (PIN), a secret-knowledge based technique that has historically demonstrated to provide ineffective protection from misuse. Unfortunately, with the increasing capabilities of mobile devices, such as online banking and shopping, the need for more effective protection is imperative. This study proposes the use of two-factor authentication as an enhanced technique for authentication on a Smartphone. Through utilising secret-knowledge and keystroke analysis, it is proposed a stronger more robust mechanism will exist.
