BEHAVIORAL BIOMETRIC TECHNOLOGIES
What is STROKK?
STROKK is a software that collects keystroke data and uses mathematic and statistics to vectorize the data to build a "profile" that allows to identify, authenticate and compare user's patterns.
How does it work?
STROKK software collects keystroke dynamics, analyzes them using in-house mathematical and statistical algorithms and authenticates users just by the way they use a keyboard. It is a bit like "graphology in the computer age". It has been extensively tested and has proved to be reliable and robust.
Non intrusive, no hardware
Compared to other biometrics, keystroke biometrics has desirable properties due to its user-friendliness and non-intrusiveness. Keystroke dynamics data can be collected without a user’s cooperation or even awareness. Unlike other biometrics, the temporal information of keystrokes can be collected to ascertain a user using only software and no additional hardware.
Continuous user validation
This argument stems from observations that similar neuro-physiological factors that make written signatures unique, are also exhibited in a user’s typing pattern . When a person types, the latencies between successive keystrokes, keystroke durations, finger placement and applied pressure on the keys can be used to construct a unique signature (i.e., profile) for that individual. For well-known, regularly typed strings, such signatures can be quite consistent. Thus, Biotype offers a way to continuously validate the legitimate identity of a user. As long as user interaction with the system through input devices persists, keystroke pattern can be constantly monitored and reevaluated.
STROKK website, documentation
ADGS innovative, tokenless authentication system delivers strong security through a combination of keystroke dynamics, behavioral and environmental characteristics to minimize identity theft, web fraud and other system vulnerabilities. Password are vulnerable: they can be stolen, lent, shared, hacked.... but the way a user types on a keyboard is unique. It is not anymore what you type, but how you type. STROKK creates a unique personal security pattern that recognizes authorized users while keeping hackers out.
STROKK is truly innovative for securing accesses, ensuring imposters masquerading as the valid user are unable to access private or corporate information.
STROKK adds an invisible biometric layer that can be implemented into any existing system access, from the Microsoft Windows system to a simple webpage on the internet. Users do not change anything to their login habits, while allowing a control center to transparently certify a user identity in real time. STROKK is based on the concept of behavioral biometrics, or neuromuscular behavior.
Keystroke patterns are harder to reproduce than written signatures. With security systems allowing only a limited number of erroneous input attempts before locking down the account, integration of STROKK leaves random password guessing attack obsolete, and stolen credentials entirely insignificant, since successful possession of the secret key is only a mere condition of the entire authentication chain.
STROKK is ideal for National Security, Administration, Military, Banks, Oil Companies and more generally, companies with needs to identify and certify users to protect their sensitive information.
Psychological state detection and future developments
Free text keystroke dynamics refers to the habitual patterns or rhythms an individual exhibits while typing on a keyboard input device. These rhythms and patterns of tapping are idiosyncratic, in the same way as handwritings or signatures, due to their similar governing neurophysiological mechanisms.
Although keystroke dynamics is governed by a person’s neurophysiological pathway to be highly individualistic, it is also influenced by his or her psychological state. As a "behavioral" biometrics, typing exhibits instabilities due to transient factors such as emotions, stress, drowsiness or early stage of neurodegenerative diseases. ADGS is currently developing methods to detect, classify and report these states of mind.
APPLIED TO BIG DATA
(Text Analysis and Semantic MOdeling)
In today’s modern world, huge amounts of information are generated by the most diverse sources. This diversity of data sources makes current search and analysis tools useless.
Because better information means better decisions…
TASMO finds, extracts and understands relevant information
TASMO searchs and analyzes data from structured as well as unstructured data sources. This means that TASMO is able to analyze plain text files, pdf, Microsoft Word pages, web pages, medical reports, tenders, log files, gps data, metadata, social media messages, MySQL, Oracle or Microsoft databases etc…
TASMO expert system uses Artificial Intelligence to analyze all the data generated by the TASMO engine and is constantly researching and finding patterns and correlations that decision makers can use to make fast and informed decisions.
TASMO puts a lot of power into the hands of a decision maker for a low deployment cost.
TASMO is an Innovation Technology Development actively supported by Qatar Foundation
