Title: Dynamic signature generation from keystroke dynamics

Abstract

Described herein are various technologies pertaining to extracting cryptographic keys from user behavioral biometrics, specifically keystroke dynamics. Such cryptographic keys can be used for, among other things, user authentication throughout computer sessions. Keystroke dynamics are timing data indicating when keys were pressed and when they were released.
