How keystroke authentication could replace passwords
Passwords are a necessary part of our digital lives.
But far from perfect often stolen forgotten and hacked -- and I'll -- this -- and electrical and computer engineering professor at Iowa State University.
Is developing verification technology that could improve upon passwords.
We all hate that you've been XP humans on knowledge. And when we come to the thought --
And has to do is our past experience -- are even our knowledge.
And those are different -- could indeed featured two.
Passwords confirm identity when -- user logs in initially.

You can have a fairly high false positive rate let's say you're typing it and you want to finish -- sentence and answer your cell phone or.
Drink a cup a coffee that pattern could throw off.
You're typing rate but the technology has advantages. It -- -- metric measurement can't be stolen.
And it doesn't require additional hardware anything that uses the technologists already available has -- -- far lower cost of deployment as old as the software.
And keystroke analysis could verify users as -- bank or shop online.
