Your typing style could better protect your accounts

  • Georgia Tech Professor Zhong Lin Wang and graduate research assistant Jun Chen created a self-powered keyboard that can also be used for biometric authentication based on a person's typing style.

  • By analyzing parameters such as the force applied by key presses and the time interval between them, a non-mechanical intelligent keyboard could provide a stronger layer of security.
