  author={Yunbin Deng and Yu Zhong},
User authentication based on typing patterns offers many advantages in the domain of cyber security, including data acquisition without extra hardware requirement, continuous monitoring as the keys are typed, and non-intrusive operation with no interruptions to a user’s daily work. In this chapter, we adopt three popular voice biometrics algorithms to perform keystroke dynamics based user authentication, namely, 1) Gaussian Mixture Model with Universal Background Model (GMM-UBM), 2) identity… Expand
