Passwords are long broken. Biometrics, from fingerprints to iris scans, are often trumpeted as the only real viable alternative, a natural physical component of the user that can’t be easily spoofed (at least that’s the idea).
Romania’s TypingDNA thinks that behavioural biometrics is the way to go.
“The way people type on their keyboards is unique. It’s like your fingerprint, it’s something unique, it’s behavioural biometrics based on how you type. It’s who you are,” said Cristian Tamas, co-founder and marketing manager.
“Behavioural biometrics is something that you are, something natural. The typing is a special behaviour that you have so we use that to authenticate people,”
