The NBT: Keystroke Passwords

Is showing I.D. with the stroke of a key the next big thing?

Maggie: Now, between Facebook, Twitter, your bank account – life is filled with so many passwords!

And if you’re like me, you probably can’t remember any of them!

Well lucky for us, there’s an innovative new method being developed at Iowa State University.  But is it the next big thing?

Just like fingerprints, everybody types in a unique way – a different keystroke pattern.

This new technology keeps track of your movements at the keyboard, and uses that information to identify you.

So instead of a password, you just start typing, and the system recognizes your keystroke. It will continue to monitor your movements to make sure it’s actually you at the computer.

The best part about these keystroke fingerprints: It’s hard to steal or hack and you won’t ever forget it.
