Abstract Biometric systems identify of users based on behavioral
or physiological characteristics. This paper explores the feasibility
of automatically identifying participants in Haptic systems. Such a
biometric system would lead to important and interesting
applications such as continuous authentication in tele-operation. In
order to test this feasibility, we designed a Haptic system in which
position, velocity, force and torque data from the tool was
continuously measured and stored. Using this system, users
navigated a simple maze where the user generates a continuous path
from start to finish. Subsequently, several algorithms were
developed to extract characteristic biometric features from the
measured data. A 78.8% probability of verification was observed for
