Biometric keyboard signature authentication for Windows logon – A Quick Guide to DiBiSoft-s BioKeyLogon
Hello, we are glad you came.
The application of biometric methods allows you to significantly increase the security of your confidential information. Knowing the passphrase will not be enough for the intruder again, because he needs to have unique physical parameters from the rightful owner of the protected data.
The biometric authentication market means it already exists. As a rule, they are represented by expensive hardware / software solutions that are used for access control in large commercial or public institutions, where the overall cost of information is far higher than the cost of the biometric system itself. For most companies, companies, small offices, home computers and mobile phones, where the level of data confidentiality is relatively low, the use of biometric systems that are very expensive is not financially justified.
The passphrase analysis method is one of the available authentication methods. As a rule, this completes the standard password authentication method. In this method, the user must know the password and must be able to type it correctly using the keyboard. That is the way the standard passphrase authentication procedure is extended by biometric keyboard signature authentication.
However, the cost of such a solution will be significantly lower than the cost of a biometric system with a comparable level of authentication error. For example, the cost of a biometric system that uses iris scanning lies at an average value of 500 dollars, while the retinal scanning system is valued at around 4,000 dollars, the cost of the scanner which is the biggest part of the total cost.
BioKeyLogon is a new original solution in the field of biometric authentication. BioKeyLogon allows you to extend standard OS entry procedures by using surreptitious biometric authentication procedures based on keyboard signatures. This application works with Windows 2000/2003 / XP and is intended for use in homes, small offices and companies.
The developer BioKeyLogon solved the following problem:
– The influence of the user’s psychophysical condition has been minimized;
– The process of creating a user’s biometric model has been simplified (usually the user must enter a password at least 20 times);
– The system’s ability to analyze unclear keyboard signatures from “average” users has been improved;
– The system now monitors the dynamics of the user’s keyboard behavior and makes dynamic changes according to the user’s biometric model.
BioKeyLogon is fully integrated into a hidden and fixed system. Users enter the system in the same way as they did before, but the software quietly checks the dynamics of password entry. If this parameter differs from the reference value, the system will react as if an incorrect answer has been entered. If the intruder only knows the password and tries to enter the system protected by BioKeyLogon, the chances of its success will be minimal. This situation will also seem confusing, because the system will report an incorrect password notification message for a password that is considered to be fully valid by the intruder.
Silent biometric authentication procedures based on keyboard signatures are only used for users who store reference keyboard signatures stored on their system. Other users will use a standard login that is password protected. All biometric data from system users is stored in additional secure locations.
