Keystroke Authentication on Mobile Devices with a Capacitive Display

Matthias Trojahn, Frank Ortmeier

Abstract

Nowadays, it is common to address security problems in the newspaper. Losing or stealing of mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) is in particular an important topic. A lot of information can be stored and accessed via these devices. The one reason why this problem exists, is because the mobile devices are not secured properly. In our work we present an authentication method for these mobile devices.We are using the keystroke dynamics during typing a PIN (four or six numbers) or password. With this the security of the devices gets improved. Keystroke dynamics are already used for authentication on PCs and on mobile phones with hardware keys on a 12-key layout.
