In higher education institutions, which are more vulnerable to cyberattacks than those in other industries, identifying people by how they type could be another key privacy tool for IT administrators. Ed Tech reports keystroke dynamics are a low-cost layer of user authentication that doesn’t require individuals to learn anything new or memorize complicated instructions. While malware that logs keystrokes presents a challenge for adoption, KeyTrac CEO Thomas Wölf says no one can type the exact same way twice, meaning identical keystrokes are relatively easy to recognize as coming from a keylogger.
