Ido Yariv and Mordechai Nisenson, working under the supervision
Dr. Ran El-Yaniv
Prof. Ron Meir
(of the EE Dept.)
for the new development.
The idea of identifying a typist according to
resulting "keystroke dynamics" has been around at least
since the 80's. While currently available
identify a typist typing fixed phrases (like passwords)
the new technology developed
in the data mining laboratory
is capable of identifying a typist typing free text.
