Behavioral biometrics

Behavioral biometrics relates to uniquely identifying and measuring patterns in human behaviour and activities. It is distinct from relying on physical attributes as a measure i.e. fingerprint, iris recognition. Instead it relates to what you do and how you do it e.g. the way you type.

Behavioural biometrics – the future of security

The jury is out on whether the humble alphanumeric password is dead, but the popularity of ‘123456’, ‘password’ and ‘qwerty’ doesn’t exactly breed confidence. Cue biometrics, in the form of a fingerprint sensor on an iPhone to power Apple Pay. But such ‘static’ biometrics is last year’s tech…

How behavioral biometrics can enhance security

Traditional authentication methods are struggling to keep up with the expansion of online services. Yet additional systems like two-factor authentication can prove to be cumbersome.

Adding behavioral biometrics to adaptive authentication

There’s a vision of a future where employees and customers don’t even have to enter a password and if they do it can be a simple one – password1234. These people envision a world of adaptive authentication. These systems take multiple attributes — IP address, geo-location of mobile device, time of accessing data, etc. – and then make a decision on whether or not to enable access.

Ibm dives into behavioral biometrics

IBM is diving into the emerging field of behavioral biometrics with new upgrade for its digital banking security system. Called IBM Security Trusteer Pinpoint Detect, the system now uses machine learning to build profiles of how users interact with their devices.

How behavioral biometrics is innovating it security

We’ve known for a long while that passwords, firewalls and private networks simply aren’t sufficient for tight IT security anymore. It’s all too easy for even a semi-sophisticated cyber-criminal to scan for passwords and find back doors into personal and business data that, sooner or later, amount to illicit money in the thief’s bank account. Thus, the race is on to develop workable alternatives, with behavioral biometrics one of the more promising ones.
