  journal={Commun. ACM},
The variables that help make a handwritten signature a unique human identifier also provide a unique digital signature in the form of a stream of latency periods between keystrokes. This article describes a method of verifying the identity of a user based on such a digital signature, and reports results from trial usage of the system.
