Psylock – biometric login using the typing behavior

This is an interesting concept in biometrics, and at least with my limited testing- seems to work very well. I tested their demo system on different computers with different keyboards with no problem. Switching from laptop to “natural” keyboard dropped my recognition score, but it was still deemed acceptable, and the system dynamically adjusts itself as more typing data is collected for a user. All-in-all, I think it is pretty cool.

I’m disturbed by the fact that there is no information about how to implement it on one’s site or in one’s network, the only demo is online, and there is no pricing or licensing information. It has the look of something still in development and not ready for commercial release. The name “Psylock” also conveys that it is some sort of trick, as opposed to actually doing what it claims. I like the idea though, and feel it is definitely something to keep an eye on.
