Abstract

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the performance ofstatic keystroke analysis as a complimentary and transparent security solution in the context of perimeter defense and facility access. A biometric keypad prototype was developed to evaluate the classification accuracy using temporal keystroke characteristics and feature points extracted from pressure sensors embedded within the keypad A novel method is proposed to improve keystroke classification accuracy by analyzing 3 pressure related characteristics. amplitude or peak, peak area, and peak sharpness.
